Latrell Sprewells choking something else...

Woman: Sprewell choked me during sex
Former NBA star under investigation for alleged assault on his yacht

Updated: 29 minutes ago
MILWAUKEE - Police questioned former NBA player Latrell Sprewell after a women accused him of choking her while the two were having consensual sex, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported Thursday.

The 21-year-old Milwaukee woman reported the sexual assault on a boat at the McKinley Marina on Tuesday.

The Journal-Sentinel said that Sprewell gave police consent to search his yacht for evidence, according to Anne E. Schwartz, Milwaukee Police Department spokeswoman.

According to the newspaper, the woman told police that she and Sprewell were having sex on the yacht when he began to choke her. The woman told police that she fought him off and returned to shore, after which Sprewell drove her to her home.

Police said they saw red marks on the woman's neck, the newspaper added.

Schwartz said Sprewell, of River Hills, voluntarily appeared at the police department’s downtown offices with his attorneys and gave police permission to search his boat. Schwartz declined to say if Sprewell, who’s scheduled to meet with the district attorney’s office Thursday afternoon, was a suspect in the assault.

Messages were left seeking comment from Sprewell’s attorneys, Steven Kohn and Jonathan Smith.

Sprewell, 35, played 13 NBA seasons, most recently with the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2004-05 season.

He was a four-time All-Star, but remains most known for several off-court incidents — including a 68-game suspension after choking Golden State Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo at a practice in 1997.

The NBA suspended him for one game in 2004 after he yelled a sexual vulgarity at a female fan who was heckling him during a game.

In December 2003, Sprewell was fined $25,000 by the NBA for cursing at New York Knicks chairman James Dolan and screaming at the team’s bench. In 1999, Sprewell was fined $10,000 for making profane remarks to fans during a game.

In November 2004, he received a misdemeanor citation after arguing with a police officer during a traffic stop. Sprewell, who was a passenger in the vehicle, claimed he was treated unfairly.

A native of Milwaukee, Sprewell didn’t play varsity basketball until his senior year at Washington High School, when he averaged 28 points per game. He played at a junior college before becoming a standout at Alabama.

The question is, since he's no longer in the NBA and hense can't support his family on his millions and millions of dollars he's earned so far, can we afford a lawyer?

I just imagine that during the sex he somehow pictured Carlesimo's head on the girl and then the choking began.

Wow. I thought he just attacked his coach. I had no idea he was actually performing part of his sexual routine during that incident. What a weird fetish.

Latrell Sprewell named in $200 million NYC palimony suit

By LARRY NEUMEISTER, Associated Press Writer
January 29, 2007

NEW YORK (AP) -- The mother of four of former NBA star Latrell Sprewell's children sued him for $200 million Monday, alleging Sprewell broke their long-term cohabitation deal and roughed her up last month in their Westchester County home.

Candace Cabbil brought the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, saying Sprewell recently ended the arrangement that developed after they met in 1989 when both attended the University of Alabama.

"I certainly have no comment about that at this point," said Jonathan C. Smith, an attorney for Sprewell.

The lawsuit says that on Sept. 8, Sprewell broke his promise to share his life and fortune with Cabbil when he entered their Purchase, N.Y., home and announced they needed "to end this fake" relationship.

Sprewell started giving Cabbil less money than usual for household expenses and for their children, ages 3, 7, 8 and 11, and made himself scarce when she tried to find him, the lawsuit says. The lawsuit said Cabbil also was the guardian for a 16-year-old child Sprewell fathered with another woman.

It alleges that, in December, Sprewell entered their home, chased Cabbil around and smacked her hand to prevent her from trying to use a cell phone to call police. Then he allegedly grabbed her and dragged her down a flight of stairs by her feet, causing her physical and emotional injury.

According to the lawsuit, the encounter brought a violent end to a relationship that belied earlier promises that she had "nothing to worry about" and she "owned everything he owned" despite his failure to marry or to put her name on the home he bought for $3 million in 2000.

Cabbil, who gave up a $25,000 job at a hospital to have their first child in 1995, said in the lawsuit that there was rarely less than $100,000 in the couple's joint bank account.

Sprewell also hired a baby sitter and a house cleaner, bought Cabbil new cars and registered Cabbil as his wife with the National Basketball Association so she could receive health insurance, the lawsuit said.

When Sprewell was traded from the New York Knicks to the Minnesota Timberwolves in July 2003, the couple agreed that Cabbil and the children would remain in Purchase, the lawsuit said.

Instead of returning to his family in New York, Sprewell chose to live on a yacht he had purchased in Wisconsin, the lawsuit said.

Sprewell, who lives in River Hills, Wis., near Milwaukee, played 13 NBA seasons, most recently with the Timberwolves in the 2004-05 season. He was a four-time All-Star.

Sprewell has not played professional basketball since turning down a three-year, $21 million extension from Minnesota.
