Draymond Green, a star forward for the Golden State Warriors, was slapped with a lawsuit Tuesday.
Jermaine Edmondson and Bianca Williams brought claims of physical assault, bullying and misleading statements against the professional basketball player stemming from two incidents in Michigan last summer, according to lawyer Lisa Bloom, who is representing the accusers.
The first sentence of their lawsuit claims that "Draymond Green is a bully."
"The filing of this lawsuit was a last resort," Bloom said. "Mr. Green has refused to accept responsibility for his conduct and so we will ask a jury to educate him and hold him accountable."
The incidents of alleged violence occurred last July in East Lansing, Mich., which is the home of Green's college alma mater. Edmondson alleges that Green bumped into him at a bar and bullied him with a demeaning comment about being a scholarship athlete who Green is paying for.
Green then turned to his entourage, according to Bloom. That's when two men with Green allegedly pushed Edmondson against a wall and choked him, according to Bloom. Williams tried to intervene, but one of the men grabbed her by neck and also pushed her against a wall.
"I still feel that man's hand around my neck and it will forever be traumatizing," Williams said.
