MSG Security Chief Fired After Charles Oakley Incident

Madison Square Garden’s top security chief has been fired after this week’s televised clash between New York Knicks legend Charles Oakley and the arena security officials. According to DNAinfo New York, MSG chief James Dolan—who also owns the Knicks—fired Frank Benedetto, the senior VP of security for the arena’s company. During Wednesday evening’s Knicks game against the Los Angeles Clippers, Oakley was engaged in a shoving match with security personnel after allegedly shouting at Dolan from nearby courtside seats. Oakley was hauled off, pinned down, and arrested by NYPD officials in front of TV cameras and fans who openly expressed their displeasure with the treatment of a local legend.
