Fuck you all!” after Wembanyama was ushered contained in the restaurant. Despite this, police in Las Vegas declined to file any expenses within the case.
However, video of the incident additionally makes it clear why expenses weren’t filed within the incident. Most importantly, Smith didn’t immediately or deliberately slap Spears as claimed. Instead, Smith seems to knock Spears’ hand away from Wembanyama’s again. As a end result, both his arm or her hand makes incidental contact along with her face. However, it will be dishonest to name it a “backhand”. Furthermore, Spears was not knocked to the bottom as she initially claimed.
