    Associated Press

    MINNEAPOLIS -- New Jersey Nets forward Richard Jefferson was arrested Wednesday on charges of assault for grabbing another man by the throat in a Minneapolis club earlier this year.

    Jefferson was in town with the team on Jan. 27 when, according to a charge filed, he went to a club in the Graves Hotel where the victim was having a private birthday party in a roped-off section.


    The documents say Jefferson entered the area and got angry when he was asked to leave. He is accused of grabbing the victim, shoving him to a bench and choking him with both hands.


    Nets spokesman Gary Sussman had no comment. Jefferson's agent did not immediately return a phone message.

    Jefferson's first court hearing is set for June 18.

    Just imagine if this was Ike Diogu or someone on the Pacers......

    Somehow I don't think RJ will be called a thug.
