Man Arrested For Trying To Punch Rajon Rondo Outside Nightclub

A man was arrested for his role in an altercation outside a Lowell nightclub early Saturday morning.

Eric Valarezo, 31, was charged with disorderly contact after police said he attempted to punch Rondo outside¬†Brian’s Ivy Hall on Merrimack Street in Lowell.

Rondo’s entourage, which included fellow NBA players Nate Robinson, Josh Smith and Rudy Gay, wrestled Valarezo to the ground. Officers then placed Valarezo in custody.

Kevin Hayhurst, the bar’s co-owner, said Rondo was at the club for a promotional event. Hayhurst added that Rondo was “unpersonable” and “disrespectful toward patrons” inside the club,¬†according to the Lowell Sun.

“It was definitely provoked,” Valarezo told the Lowell Sun by phone. “I wasn’t even intoxicated or anything like that.”

Valarazo, who isn’t an NBA fan, told the paper he reacted after he was pushed. He said he had no idea he was in an altercation with an NBA player.

No one was hurt in the incident. Rondo and the other NBA players joined Paul Pierce and Kendrick Perkins, among others, at a charity basketball game at Harvard University on Saturday night.
