A professional basketball player was about to give a handout to a man asking for money when police officers took him to the ground and arrested him, a former teammate testified Wednesday. Ex-Atlanta Hawks power forward Pero Antic said he was sitting in an Uber car with the door open near a trendy Manhattan nightclub in the early hours of April 8 when he heard officers arguing with guard-forward Thabo Sefolosha as he tried to give a beggar money. ”They didn’t allow him to give the money,” said Antic, who was also arrested after he climbed out of the car and touched an officer’s shoulder while asking why his friend was being placed under arrest.
