Atlanta Hawks Player Thabo Sefolosha Breaks Leg In Scuffle With NYPD

According to TMZ reports:

Atlanta Hawks star Thabo Sefolosha was grabbed around the neck — and flung to the ground — in a struggle with several NYPD officers during his Wednesday arrest … and TMZ Sports has the footage.

Before the video begins, Thabo’s teammate Pero Antic was already sitting on the curb — subdued by police for allegedly obstructing cops from investigating the Chris Copeland stabbing.

But when cops tried to corral Thabo, something went wrong — and a scuffle breaks out between the NBA player and 6 officers.

At one point during the struggle, you can see an officer reach out and grab Thabo by his neck … while two other officers help take the 6’7″, 220-pounder down to the ground.

Eventually, Thabo is placed in cuffs — and officers walk him down the street … while onlookers shout obscenities in French directed toward the police.

Moments ago, it was reported that Thabo suffered a fractured tibia in the melee and will miss the remainder of the season.

Least he didn’t end up choked to death…
