Jazz Thabo Sefolosha Says Injury From NYPD ‘Total Abuse of Power’

Published

Utah Jazz veteran guard Thabo Sefolosha is speaking out about his experience a few years ago in New York in which he was involved in an altercation with the New York Police Department, which landed him behind bars and with a broken leg that would require surgery and a lengthy recovery.

Sefolosha was allegedly involved in a heated argument with an NYPD officer who was responding to a stabbing incident at popular Manhattan nightclub 1 Oak, something Sefolosha had no involvement with at all but didn’t stop him and the NYPD from colliding.

“It all could have been avoided very easily,” Sefolosha said, according to The Athletic’s Tony Jones. “It was basically a frustrated officer trying to prove a point. He wanted to prove he was the one in power. It was a total abuse of power, in  my opinion. And it was very, very uncalled for.”

Although it’s been a few years, Sefolosha is still angry about what went down.

“It was total B.S.,” Sefolosha said. “They were in the wrong. They violated my rights as a citizen and they violated my rights as a pedestrian. I had to go through a surgery and a rehab because of that. There was no way I was taking a deal. I hadn’t done anything wrong.”
