Flip and get the details on Kyle O’Quinn…
In the interim the woman is suing O’Quinn!
Here is what’s being reported from her persrective:
Shakaira Elaine Elie, 22, was enjoying a day party with her friends at Trinity Place Bar and Restaurant on May 22 when they noticed a very tall man staring at her, according to a lawsuit filed in Brooklyn Supreme Court.
Unbeknownst to Elie, the 6-foot-10 man was Knicks power forward Kyle O’Quinn.
O’Quinn, 26, of Queens, was with a woman — believed to be his girlfriend — who also allegedly noticed him making googly eyes at Elie and was not paying attention to her, according to the suit’s account.
According to the suit when Elie left the party, O’Quinn tried to talk to her but she rebuffed his advances and that is when the alleged assault took place. First, O’Quinn’s girlfriend hit Elie and then this happened.
O’Quinn allegedly jumped in and grabbed Elie by the neck, according to the court documents.
“We find it extremely disturbing that a person with his fame, that young people look up to, would not prevent a fight from happening, but instead would brutally attack, choke and slam her to the ground, not once, but twice,” said Elie’s attorney Marion Conde da Silveira.
Elie who didn’t know who O’Quinn was had to look him up online before going to the cops. Her purse and wallet were stolen and she did go to the hospital for her injuries.
As for Kyle O’Quinn, he hasn’t given his side of the story yet.
