Former Atlanta Hawks center Pero Antic on Friday filed a civil suit against the New York Police Department, and Hawks forward Thabo Sefolosha will file suit this week, a source close to the proceedings said. False arrest, unlawful imprisonment, assault, battery, negligence, civil rights violations and malicious prosecution were listed as the claims in Antic’s complaint. Under Antic’s notice of claim, filed last year, $25 million was set as the maximum amount Antic can recover.
“The NYPD has all but conceded that they falsely and improperly arrested Pero Antic,” Alex Spiro, Pero’s attorney, said. “They will now be held responsible.” Sefolosha’s suit, which will name the NYPD and other city agencies, will likely include charges of unlawful force, unlawful arrest and malicious prosecution, the source said. Sefolosha’s notice of claim, also filed last year, set $50 million as the ceiling he can be compensated for damages.
In the preseason (former Hawks teammate) Pero Antic came to Oklahoma City with Fenerbache and talked about that night in New York. He was really supportive of you, saying “it wasn’t justice what they did” to you. Do you feel good about the process and how you went about it? Thabo Sefolosha: “There aren’t too many other ways I could have went about it. I was grateful to the justice system that I was able to defend myself, and prove that I didn’t do anything wrong that night.” Do you plan on moving forward with any more legal action? Thabo Sefolosha: “We’ll see. To be honest, I don’t look forward too much. At the moment, I’m happy what needed to be taken care of was able to go the way it went.”
