27. Thabo Sefolosha
This is one of the most notorious incidents on this list. Sefolosha is a well-loved basketball player unless of course, you’re a member of the NYPD. Then you’re probably not such a big fan of the Atlanta Hawks star. By sheer coincidence, he would up in the same club where Chris Copeland got stabbed that night.
The police shut the club down and hundreds of people poured out onto the street. For some inexplicable reason, the police then decided to target Sefolosha, forcing him to the ground. One of the officers smashed his leg with an extendable baton, breaking it and ending his season. The basketball star reached a $4 million settlement with the NYPD.
