Ex-Knicks hoopster answers to assault charges in Harrison court
Former New York Knicks player Latrell Sprewell can?t to see his four children after a judge upheld an order of protection against him in Harrison Town Court Friday.
Sprewell pleaded not guilty to charges of assault and endangering the welfare of a child in connection to an incident at his Purchase mansion in December. Candance Cabbill, the mother of Sprewell's four children, says the basketball star came over to break up the relationship. Cabbill claims when she went to call the police, Sprewell knocked the phone out of her hands and dragged her down a flight of stairs. Sprewell was hit with child endangerment charges because his children were home at the time.
The judge did say the order of protection against Sprewell can be modified by a family court judge sometime in the future. However, he will not be allowed to see his children for now. The NBA All-Star made headlines in 1997 after he was suspended for attacking Golden Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo during a practice session.
