Push It to the Limit

Two notable athletes did some notable pushing and shoving last night, and it caused one of them to end up in jail. Let’s start in Washington Heights where last night Minnesota Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley got into a heated altercation with a fan during a streetball game. Beasley was reppin’ for Team 914, a local Dyckman Park streetball squad who was facing off against Kevin Durant and his Team Nike. Naturally, the park was packed with a standing-room only crowd, with many fans climbing up fences and trees just to get a look at the action. Shit got real in the second half when Beasley started to chirp back at a group of fans who were heckling him. At one point, he was reported to have said “I get paid to do this!” Sick chirp, Mike. Anyways, Beasley decided to take his anger out on noted Dyckman frequenter Garland Quince, and approached Mr. Quince, placed a hand on his head, and shoved him. As Quince so eleqountly described it, “He just mushed me. He mushed me in my face.” Yo, G. Quince you just got mushed hard! The game was delayed for 10 minutes while security restrained a wild Beasley. Not everything went bad for the marijuana smokin’ Timberwolves forward as his team ended up beating KD’s squad 80-77. After the jump, check out what other athlete did some pushing to the wrong type of person and paid the price.
Always controversial New York Rangers winger Sean Avery was arrested at his Hollywood home last night after reportedly shoving a police officer. Apparently, Avery was throwing a banger at his house in Hollywood Hills and a neighbor called the cops to complain about the noise. When the officer showed up on Avery’s doorstep at around 1 a.m., Avery chose not to turn down the music like a little bitch but rather pushed the officer and then slammed the door in his face. ‘Atta boy, Sean! Unfortunately, such conduct does not simply get you sent to the penalty box to feel shamed but rather gets you arrested and sent to jail. The LAPD confirmed that, five hours after the incident, Avery remained in jail. His bail was set at $20,000. The lesson to be learned: don’t interrupt Sean Avery when he’s having a fuckin’ party! Rock on, 1 6.
