Rafer Alston Sued Over Fight at Strip Club

When Rafer Alston filled in for Jameer Nelson down the stretch a few years ago where he helped in directing the Magic to the Finals, it seemed like he was resurrecting his career. Not so much though. But remember when he slapped Eddie House upside his head during that run? This sounds all too familiar…

Troubled ex-New Jersey Nets player Rafer Alston fouled out at a strip joint — bashing another man on the head with a beer bottle during a booze-fueled brawl, a new lawsuit charges.

The former NBA athlete, 35, who’s originally from Jamaica, Queens, attacked fellow Perfection Gentleman’s Club patron Erick Franceschini, 32, of Milford, Conn., during a knock-down-drag-out free-for-all in July 2010, according to papers recently filed in Queens Supreme Court.

Alston smashed Franceschini with the bottle during a dispute that began in the Woodside, Queens, club and spilled out on the street, said Franceschini’s lawyer, John Rapawy.
