Scary stuff coming out of Orlando, as Chris Duhon was reportedly hit by a car on purpose following an argument.
Duhon and his brother-in-law, Julio Hernandez, were walking a parking garage when a man in a black Lexus shouted at them for walking in the way of his car. Some heated words were exchanged and the driver stepped out of the car, and he and the former Knicks point guard exchanged words. Hernandez claims he separated the two, and when the man got back into his Lexus and as he was leaving the parking lot he deliberately ran into Duhon, who hit the hood of the car and was taken to an Orlando area hospital.
Luckily, it appears no major damage was sustained as he left the hospital on his own volition, but when police questioned Duhon about the incident he claims he has no recollection because he hit his head on the car.
According to the police report, Duhon and his brother-in-law, Julio Hernandez, were walking on the level 2C of the parking garage when the driver of a black Lexus started honking at them to get out of the way.
Hernandez told police as the Lexus passed by, the driver rolled down his window and some words were exchanged. Then, police said driver stopped, got out of his car and argued face-to-face with Duhon.
Hernandez told officers that he separated the driver and Duhon and that he and Duhon kept on walking and the suspect got back into his car. As Duhon and Hernandez got about twenty feet away from the Lexus, Hernandez told police the driver accelerated towards them. Hernandez said he was able to get out of the way, but Duhon was hit.
According to the report, Duhon landed on the hood of the car and his head hit the front windshield. The former Magic player was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center by ambulance.
