A Phoenix Suns fan has accused the wife of Dallas Mavericks coach Avery Johnson of assaulting her in the stands during Game 4 of the Western Conference finals on Tuesday night.
Rebecca Kettle told police that Cassandra Johnson hit her twice in the shoulder during a verbal confrontation. According to a police report, an officer read Johnson her rights before questioning her.
According to all involved, Johnson was upset that Kettle and boyfriend Jose Martinez kept standing and cheering, blocking the view of her children. One witness said Johnson used an obscenity when telling the pair to sit down.
The Suns fans, typically, offered little in the way of defense.
When the three got into an argument, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban intervened and tried to calm everyone down.
