A Different Kind of Clutch Hitter

What an a$*#@!e:

Lakers rookie forward Derrick Caracter was arrested and jailed in New Orleans on Sunday morning for allegedly hitting a pregnant waitress at an IHOP while intoxicated.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that Caracter started “grabbing and pulling” at the waitress, and was charged with one count of battery and one count each for public intoxication and resisting arrest.

The Lakers were in New Orleans playing the Hornets in their first-round playoff series, which the Hornets evened up at two games apiece after beating LA on Sunday night. The incident happened near the Lakers’ hotel on a night there was no game.
