Police report details in arrest of Hawks players

Pero Antic

Charges: Obstructing Governmental Administration in the Second Degree (1 count); Disorderly Conduct (1 count) and Harassment in the Second Degree (1 count). Charges are listed as misdemeanors

Complaint: “I observed the defendant and a separately charged defendant Thabo Sefolosha standing at the above location. I was helping to clear the area and establish a crime scene due to an unrelated incident at the above location. I told the defendant and the separately charged defendant approximately six times to disperse and clear the area. I observed the defendant and the separately charged defendant move a couple feet away but refuse to clear the area. The defendant and the separately charged defendant actions interfered with my ability and lawful duty to clear the area in order for the other officers to establish a crime scene.

“I am informed by Police Officer Michael Osullivan, Shield #13084, of the Tenth Precinct, that as he was assisting in the arrest of the separately charged defendant Thabo Sefolosha, the defendant grabbed his left shoulder, making it difficult to assist in the arrest.”
