Tim Donaghy Attacked
Former NBA referee Tim Donaghy was attacked by a fellow inmate during his 15-month sentence in federal prison, the Los Angeles Daily News reported Thursday.
A source who has maintained regular contact with Donaghy during his imprisonment said Donaghy was attacked in November and suffered significant damage to his knee, the Daily News reported.
The source said Donaghy could not comment for the Daily News story. He was unsure why Donaghy was assaulted and struck "several times with a paint-rolling stick," according to the report.
After repeated visits to the prison's medical facility, Donaghy underwent an MRI exam that showed a tear of the lateral meniscus, as well as a cyst, the source said, according to the Daily News. The source said Donaghy was denied treatment and told by a doctor that his injury was a "congenital" condition.
A few Sacramento fans can smile at this because they really won't have anything to smile about for the next 10 years.
