Former Laker Run Down in Florida Parking Garage

Posted: Updated:

In a story from our affiliate WOFL, Orlando Police say an argument inside a parking garage led to a violent attack against former Lakers and Orlando Magic guard Chris Duhon.

Police say that Duhon was intentionally run over around 7 p.m. on Saturday.  Duhon and his brother in law, Julio Hernandez,  were walking down the middle of the parking garage when the driver of a black Lexus began honking at them to get out of the way.

Words were exchanged, and the driver got out of the car to confront the two. Hernandez says he separated the driver and Duhon, and he and Duhon kept on walking, and the suspect got back in his car.

When Duhon and Hernandez were about 20 feet away,  the driver accelerated toward them.  Hernandez jumped out of the way, but Duhon was struck and landed on the hood of the car, his head hitting the windshield.

The driver took off, and is being sought by police.  Duhon was treated at a hospital, but was able to walk out later, under his own power.   He says he has no memory of the incident.

Duhon was traded to the  Lakers in 2012.  He played with the team until he was put on waivers at the end of June of this year.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.

    A jury took only about 90 minutes Tuesday to convict former New York City Councilman Daniel Halloran of bribery charges in a scheme to buy a spot on the mayoral ballot for state Sen. Malcolm Smith. Halloran was also found guilty of taking payoffs from what he thought were developers who wanted him to funnel city money their way. The men were actually an FBI agent and an FBI informant.
