According to a report from the South Florida Sun Sentinel, former Detroit Pistons‘ Defensive Player of the Year Dennis Rodman has been accused of slapping a man at his 58th birthday party.
The alleged incident occurred at a rooftop bar in Delray Beach, Florida.
Retired NBA player Dennis Rodman “open hand smacked” a fellow partier at a rooftop bar in Delray Beach on May 17, according to a police report.
Jeff Soulouque, of Miami, wants to press charges, according to the report. He said he suffered injuries on his face and to his eye from what he calls an unprovoked attack.
“I was like, ‘What is your problem?'” Soulouque told the South Florida Sun Sentinel on Thursday. “It was out of nowhere. He just hit me and I was blindsided and he started charging me.”
Rodman, who lives in Fort Lauderdale, has not been arrested or charged. His attorney, Lorne Berkeley of Miami, said on Thursday: “We deny that any incident occurred.”
“Once a thorough investigation is completed, the incident will not be substantiated,” Berkeley said.
