On April 8, 2015, NBA player Thabo Sefolosha was arrested outside a New York night club and charged with resisting arrest, obstructing government administration, and disorderly conduct. In the process of placing him under arrest, multiple officers grabbed him, which resulted in his leg being fractured. Prior to trial, prosecutors offered Sefolosha a plea bargain to have his case dismissed if he performed one day of community service. Sefolosha rejected that plea offer, and his trial began earlier this week. Yesterday, after deliberating for about an hour, a Manhattan jury found him not guilty of all charges.
