The attorney for NBA star Kendrick Perkins has filed a pre-trial motion on Public Intoxication and Disorderly Conduct charges against the professional athlete.

It'll now be up to a judge to decide if and when the case will be heard.

The Oklahoma City Thunder Center was arrested early Saturday morning after police say he showed signs of being drunk while arguing with the owner of The Ticket sports bar.

Perkins held a fundraiser at the night club for his charity foundation following his second annual basketball summer camp.

Attorney Langston Adams says they are considering filing a police brutality complaint against the arresting officers.

 


An attorney for NBA star and southeast Texas native Kendrick Perkins says he is innocent of all charges stemming from his weekend arrest.

Perkins was arrested early Saturday morning after what Beaumont police call a disturbance at The Ticket sports bar, off College Street.

The Oklahoma City Thunder center was booked in the Jefferson County Jail and released a short time later after posting bond.

Police say Perkins threatened to get physical with club management and was arrested for Public Intoxication and Disorderly Conduct.

In a press released obtained by 12 News HD, Beaumont attorney Langston Scott Adams says, quote "Mr. Perkins has maintained his innocence to the charges and is recovering at home with family suffering from injuries he received during the incident."

Adams claims witnesses are giving different accounts to what happened Saturday morning than what Beaumont police are reporting.
