Video: Cops Throw Thabo Sefolosha To The Ground And Arrest Him

TMZ has obtained cell phone video footage of Hawks guard Thabo Sefolosha’s arrest outside of a New York night club early yesterday morning. Sefolosha and teammate Pero Antic were arrested for failing to disperse, after Pacers forward Chris Copeland was stabbed. Sefolosha reportedly fractured his tibia during the arrest, which makes some sense after seeing the video.


The video starts as a crowd of cops scuffle with Sefolosha, and eventually take him down to the ground. Two cops walk him away in cuffs, while bystanders shout at them in French (Sefolosha is from Switzerland and speaks French). The end of the video shows cops talking to Antic while he is handcuffed sitting on the ground. According to the police report, cops told Sefolosha and Antic to leave six times before they were arrested.
