Assholes who can bounce a ball Indiana Pacers forward Chris Copeland, wife, stabbed at 1 OAK club; two Atlanta Hawks arrested: NYPD sources BY Rocco Parascandola NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Wednesday, April 8, 2015, 6:46 AM Robert Sabo/New York Daily News Chris Copeland is shown during his days playing for the New York Knicks. A former member of the New York Knicks now playing for the Indiana Pacers was stabbed in the abdomen — and his wife slashed — during an argument at 1 OAK club in Chelsea early Thursday, cop sources said. Chris Copeland’s attacker was arrested, and two other men, both of whom play for the Atlanta Hawks, were also booked for trying to prevent police from setting up a crime scene, the sources said. A second woman was also stabbed amid the fracas, which happened shortly before 4 a.m., as the popular club on West 17th St. was preparing to close. An argument erupted as Copeland, the other victims and the suspect were leaving, the sources said. The man who was arrested, Shezoy Bleary, 22, pulled out a knife and stabbed Copeland, 31, and slashed 28-year-old Katrine Saltara, described as Copeland’s wife, in the arm and leg, the sources said. The second woman, 53, was slashed in the abdomen. Scott Cunningham/NBAE/Getty Images Pero Antic, of the Atlanta Hawks, was also arrested. Copeland was in New York because the Pacers are playing the Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night. He and the other victims were rushed to Bellevue Hospital and were in stable condition, the sources said. When police arrived at the scene, they busted Bleary and recovered a knife, sources said. Charges against him were pending. The two members of Hawks who were arrested, Thabo Sefolosha, 30, and Pero Antic, 32, refused to move when police tried to set up a crime scene, the sources said. They were charged with obstructing governmental administration. Copeland, a 6-foot-8 forward from Orange, N.J., played 56 games with the Knicks during 2012-2013 season, his rookie year. TAMI CHAPPELL/EPA Thabo Sefolosha, also a player on the Atlanta Hawks, was arrested along with Antic for allegedly blocking police as they tried to set up a crime scene. In July 2013 the restricted free agent signed a two-year $6.1 million contract with the Pacers. The Hawks, meanwhile, are in town to play the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center. Sefolosha and Antic had been in the city no more than a few hours before the incident, as they spent Tuesday night in Atlanta, scoring a combined 32 points to help the Hawks beat the Phoenix Suns.
