Toronto Raptors president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri is under serious police investigation after he allegedly pushed sheriff's deputy right after Game 6 victory against the Golden State Warriors last night. According to reports, Ujiri pushed the officer after he was told he is not allowed to join the post-game celebrations because he didn't have the proper credentials.

A video surfaced that shows Ujiri and the officer confronting each other and it was Kyle Lowry who immediately stepped in and moved him onto the court.

After the incident took place spokesperson for the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office Ray Kelly issued a statement saying that they will pursue a misdemeanor complaint against Ujiri. He also said there was no intention of them to keep him off the court.

“We decided to take the high road in light of their victory but will submit a report for complaint,” Kelly said. “We’ve got two countries involved in this. It’s not something we wanted to have happen. It didn’t have to go this route.”

This case will probably go to the district's attorney office, and there is a high probability they will just settle their disputes because nobody got hurt and you can definitely say emotions got the best of both the officer and Ujiri at that moment.
