Rashan S. Michel has been formally charged in the attack on former Atlanta Hawks player and current broadcaster (and team vice president) Dominique Wilkins, the Associated Press reports.

Michel has been released after posting $1,000 bail.

Michel, a former NBA referee and current owner of a clothing company, approached Wilkins while a live post-game television interview was taking place and after Wilkins walked away from the broadcast Michel attacked him, according to Atlanta police.

Michel has said Wilkins owes him more than $15,000 for suits. He tweeted as much after the attack.

    He should tweet about cold compresses.

    Sure looks like the idea to attack him back fired. Ice that huge welt and I’ll see you guys on Judge Judy here in the near future.
