Report: Celtics G Rondo assaulted at club
Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo was involved in an incident at a night club prior to his charity basketball game this weekend.
Rondo was exiting a nightclub in Lowell (Mass.) when Eric Valarezo allegedly attempted to punch him, the Boston Herald reported on Monday.
Members of Rondo’s entourage – including Josh Smith of the Atlanta Hawks and Rudy Gay of the Memphis Grizzlies – wrestled the 31-year-old Valarezo to the ground to end the threat, The (Lowell) Sun reported.
Valarezo was charged with disorderly conduct after the incident.
Rondo joined Smith, Gay, Celtics teammate Paul Pierce and others in the Boston Charity Classic, an exhibition which raised money for three local charities.
