Francesa: Charles Oakley Emerges As Winner In Dispute With James Dolan

Oakley was charged with three counts of misdemeanor assault and one count of criminal trespassing, an NYPD spokesman told Patch.

He's asked Dolan to call for a press conference and apologize for what transpired when Oakley was removed from Madison Square Garden and arrested on February 8.

After James Dolan announced Friday that Charles Oakley was indefinitely barred from entering the Garden, the Knicks owner has had a change of heart, according to The Undefeated.

Mike Francesa opened his show Tuesday discussing - reluctantly - the Knicks-Charles Oakley saga.

In the following days, both Oakley and New York Knicks owner, Jim Dolan, released conflicting accounts of what happened the night of his arrest.

Then, on Monday, Silver met with Oakley and Dolan at National Basketball Association headquarters, and Jordan, a longtime friend of Oakley's, joined them over the phone.

This news is the latest turn in a freaky saga involving Oakley, who was arrested last Wednesday after shoving a security guard during a Knicks game. Rev. Sharpton is calling upon Mr. Dolan to lift the ban and reinstate Mr. Oakley's privileges.

Dolan would go on to claim that Oakley had anger issues and suggested he might have alcohol issues.

"Both Mr. Oakley and Mr. Dolan were apologetic about the incident and subsequent comments, their negative impact on the Knicks organization and the NBA, Silver said, TMZ Sports reports". "You put a label on someone and it sticks", Oakley said. Dolan, Oakley and security at MSG are set to meet this week to further rectify this matter.

The affair was made uglier as Knicks fans serenaded their team with various pro-Oakley chants later in the week.
