"(The deputy) did not know who the man was and asked for the credential, and that's when he tried to push past our deputy, and our deputy pushed him back, and there was another push that kind of moved up and struck our deputy in the face", an Alameda County Sheriff's Office spokesman told the San Francisco Chronicle. The video does not show Ujiri, or anyone else, hitting the officer.

Wiener said he was standing next to the officer when the encounter occurred but was not interviewed by authorities.

Ujiri eventually made his way onto the court for the celebration, but Kelly says police plan to file a complaint with local prosecutors. He said the officer was not seriously injured in the alleged incident, but did complain of pain in his jaw.

Ujiri has always been an executive held in high esteem, prior to orchestrating the most successful Raptors team in franchise history, he helped lay the foundation for a formidable Denver Nuggets team. "No doubt they laid hands first, and I bet it was because they could never fathom a black man was the president of a team", wrote one responder.

"The incident is being looked at, and we are cooperating with authorities", the Raptors said in statement Friday afternoon.
