Laker’s Nick Young Sued For Attack On Basketball Player During Church Game

*Nick Young is the subject of a lawsuit filed by Luis Solis, who claims the Lakers guard threw a violent temper tantrum after not getting a foul call in a church league basketball game — so he beat the crap out of him.

The incident occurred during a game at the Shepherd of the Hills Church in Porter Ranch, Calf., in August. In the court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Solis says Young became “enraged” after he thought Solis fouled him and the ref missed the call. Young then beat him down to the ground and allowed his teammates to jump in and kick him. He suffered serious injuries including a concussion — and he’s suing for unspecified damages.

Apparently, it’s not the first time Young has turned violent during pick-up games. Solis says he has not filed a police report but is contemplating doing so.

It’s the latest headline making drama for the 31-year-old, who’s trying to resurrect his Lakers career. Earlier this year, a cheating scandal cost Young his engagement to failed rapper Iggy Azalea, and damaged his friendship with teammate D’Angelo Russell.
