VIDEO REVEALS UJIRI WAS NOT THE AGRESSOR

Masai Ujiri

Who's dumb enough to falsely accuse someone of attacking them while they were wearing a body cam? The answer could turn out to be Alameda County Sheriff's, Deputy Alan Strickland.

While trying to get on the court to celebrate with his team, Masai Ujiri got into an altercation with Mr. Strickland that turned into a shoving match. We found out about it after the deputy filed a lawsuit claiming he'd suffered a "permanent disability" as a result of the altercation and claimed that Ujiri hit him "in the face and chest with both fists."

Ujiri's legal team, Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy, LLP, filed a countersuit that included video from Strickland's bodycam. I'm not a judge or lawyer, but this doesn't look good for Mr. Strickland's chances in court.

Ujiri's countersuit also includes three witness statements backing his version of events - that Ujiri did not hit Strickland with closed fists, nor did he make contact with the deputy's face. Additionally, the statements are consistent in their description of Strickland not falling to the ground, nor appearing injured after the altercation.

Mr. Strickland claims he had suffered "permanent disability," but Ujiri's legal team submitted video evidence of him going to lunch while accompanied by his wife, carrying boxes, and using a power saw outside of his home.

In a statement released later Tuesday, the Raptors said that while they are mindful of the fact the court proceeding is still ongoing, the new video evidence proves Ujiri "was not an aggressor, but instead was the recipient of two very violent, unwarranted actions."
