Kendrick Perkins was arrested on Saturday morning in Texas for public intoxication and disorderly conduct. We knew this. We didn’t know what exactly the Thunder big man did to attract the attention of the authorities. Turns out the 6′ 10″ 280-pound center wanted to fight. Via the Boston Globe:
Sergeant Marc Levy said Beaumont police were called after Perkins arrived with a large group of people and threatened to start fighting. Perkins had gone to the club after leaving a party, Levy said.
“He got drunk and wanted to fight everybody,’’ Levy said. “Almost started a big to-do.’’
His friends tried to calm him down and get him out of the club, Levy said, but Perkins did not want to leave.
Looks like the bar was all out of bubblegum.
