Oakley spoke to New York Daily News’ Frank Isola and gave his side of the story which is just as interesting. Oakley was sitting two rows behind Dolan and obviously on high alert.
“[Security guards] were staring at me,” he said. “They asked me to leave and I said I’m not leaving.”
He was charged with three accounts of third-degree assault and one account of criminal trespass.
