Former NBA big man Charles Oakley had a reputation during his playing days of being perhaps the greatest enforcer in league history, and apparently, Oakley is still about that life.

In a bizarre scene at the New York Knicks/Los Angeles Clippers game Oakley was caught on video fighting, and later being escorted out by Madison Square Garden security.

UPDATE: According to the Knicks, Oakley has been arrested.

This story was going to blow up no matter what, but it certainly doesn’t help stop the damage when the game and parts of the altercation were both caught during ESPN’s nationally televised broadcast. Of course, the incident set Twitter on fire. As you may be able to guess, the consensus on Twitter was very much “what the hell are you doing trying to fight Charles Oakley?” which is an extremely fair point.
