Rafer "Skip to My Lou" Alston has not exactly had the easiest of summers. Three weeks ago he got into a fight with a parking lot attendant. Ok, that's not too bad.
But this is. Alston was arrested early Monday morning in New York City on charges he slashed a man's throat inside a nightclub. Yeah, that's definitely a bit worse.
The incident occurred when a member of Alston's entourage got into an argument with 41-year-old Wilbert Ashman at the nightclub Stereo, according to the New York Post and Daily News.
The argument turned into a brawl and, according to Ashman, he was slashed on the right side of his neck. Alston was arrested and Ashman later picked him out of a police lineup.
Apparently the Rockets are preparing a statement as we speak. And by "preparing a statement" I mean "getting ready to release Alston."
