Watch Charles Oakley Get Into A Fight At The Knicks Game

Charles Oakley was thrown out of MSG after a fight.

Here's Charles Oakley shoving security at the Knicks game.

Former New York Knicks star/enforcer Charles Oakley is at tonight's Knicks' game. They're playing the Los Angeles Clippers at Madison Square Garden.

Oakley, 53, apparently got into it with people at the game.

Here's a longer look, from Sports Illustrated.

And here's another angle.

According to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, Oakley was later in handcuffs.

Oakley, the No. 9 overall pick in the 1985 NBA Draft, played in the league from 1985 to 2004. He was with the Knicks from 1988-98, the longest stint with any team. Oakley was an NBA All-Star once in 1994. That same year, he was a first-team All-Defense performer.

Updates to come.

Update (8:40 p.m. E.T.): The Knicks have released the following statement, saying Oakley has been arrested by New York City Police after behaving in a "highly inappropriate and completely abusive behavior." The Knicks say they hope he gets some help soon.

Here's the full statement.

What a story.
