Gerald Wilkins, ex-Knick, arrested three times in 10 days


Former Knick Gerald Wilkins, the brother of NBA Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins, has found trouble with the law, facing several charges related to three separate incidents on three different dates.

He was most recently arrested and charged with simple battery, theft by taking and aggravated assault, according to CBS46 in Georgia. The incident took place at his job on June 9, according to the report, in which Wilkins allegedly threw an object at a colleague and chased the person with a screwdriver.

Just three days earlier, he was involved in a domestic dispute in which he was charged with criminal trespassing and hindering law enforcement. Wilkins locked himself into the bedroom of the victim and police had to break in. Wilkins had disabled the smoke alarm.

The troubles for Wilkins began on May 31 when he was charged with simple assault after being accused of pushing a woman after forcing his way into her home.

The 56-year-old Wilkins was a second-round pick of the Knicks in 1985 and played with them through 1992, averaging 14.9 points and 3.5 assists per game. He also played for the Cavaliers, Grizzlies and Magic before retiring after the 1998-99 season.
