Perkins Accused of assaulting woman in Houston

Perkins Accused of assaulting woman in Houston

Kendrick Perkins bonded out of a Houston city jail this morning on a $1,000 bond. Perkins is charged with a misdemeanor assault charge.

This is Perkins’ second run in with the Houston law while playing in Oklahoma City. During the lockout season, he was arrested for an incident at Houston strip club. All charges were later dismissed.

KFOR,the NBA affiliate in Oklahoma City, was the first to report it in the metro area. Perkins, bonded out this morning, facing one charge of assault as he allegedly hit a woman. This brings back quick memories of the accusations against former Thunder player, DeAndre Liggins. Liggins was released shortly after being charged with multiple felony charges.

According to Houston court documents, the incident happened at “Nox Nightclub” in Houston, Texas back in July. However, the courts originally dismissed the case and all was forgotten. Until this week, it was decided to re-file the case, and Perkins was charged with the misdemeanor. Also, Perkins brother-in-law, Quincy Alpough, faces the same charge.

Miketta Cotton said to the local police that she and her brother back into a vehicle when leaving the club. That car just happened to be Perkins’ vehicle. Cotton got out of the vehicle, talking to a male driver. She said a woman driver came out of the car and was ready to fight. Cotton claimed to calm the woman driver down. That’s when Alpough came out pushing and shoving.

When seeing his sister being shoved by someone, Ja’Keenan Cotton, got out of the vehicle, and was then approached by a passenger in the vehicle, which he claimed to be Perkins. Cotton claims that Perkins then punched him in the head, causing him to fall to the ground.

Miketta Cotton said that Perkins then punched her in the face with a closed fist, causing her to fall down.

There was an eye witness on scene that is able to corroborate the story according to Houston police.

The Thunder released the following statement from General Manger, Sam Presti: “We are aware of the situation and take this matter seriously. We are in the process of gathering more information and have no further comment at this time.”

We’ll have more on this story as the details emerge.
