Metta World Peace Punches Detroit’s Brandon Knight, Draws Flagrant Foul (Video)


Metta World Peace and the city of Detroit do not go well together.

During the second quarter of the Lakers’ 98-97 win over Detroit on Sunday, World Peace and Pistons guard Brandon Knight got tangled up while fighting for position as Pau Gasol went for a shot. As the two continued to grapple following the play, World Peace gave the second-year guard an uppercut, although it wasn’t as vicious as some of his other acts.

World Peace was called for a flagrant foul on the play. This incident occurred in the same arena where World Peace, then known as Ron Artest, sparked a brawl between the Pistons and Pacers that spilled into the stands.
