Iverson Can't Control His Posse

In yet another case of superstar athletes having a little too much fun , Allen Iverson has been ordered by a court to pay one of two men who claimed to be beaten up by his posse.

Here's the story

WASHINGTON (AP) - A federal jury awarded $260,000 on Monday to one of two
men who sued NBA star Allen Iverson after they said they were beaten by his
entourage at a Washington nightclub.

The jury's decision against Iverson and his bodyguard, Jason Kane, covers pain and suffering as well as medical bills. The jury was expected to reconvene later Monday to consider punitive damages.

Marlin Godfrey and David Anthony Kittrell sued the Denver Nuggets guard,
saying they were beaten by his entourage in July 2005 after they refused to
vacate the Eyebar club's VIP section for Iverson.

The jury found that Kane was liable for assaulting Godfrey, who was awarded $250,000 for pain and suffering and $10,000 for his medical bills. Iverson was found negligent for failing to supervise Kane.

I'm sure you realize Iverson won't ever win a championship with Denver or anyone else. That should make you smile.
