You don't want to mess with Dominique Wilkins

The Hall of Fame hoop star may be 51 years old, but he certainly can still throw a punch.

Celebrity boxing anyone? 

Wilkins just wrapped up a post game report on Sports South when Rashan S. Michel attacked him. Apparently, according to Michel, Wilkins owes him money for some suits he purchased years ago. Michel was taken into custody where he later posted bail.

Immediately following his release, the former NBA and college basketball ref joined Twitter and tweeted, "I call what happened at Philips Arena earlier, Operation time have my money!" 

There probably won't be a next time buddy. 

He also tweeted that Wilkins says he better "watch his back." Well Mr. Michel, I think you need to watch your back after what Dominique just did to your face.

The best part of this video is when Wilkins takes his jacket and tie off like he's about to step in the ring with Michel. Clearly the guy is still on the ground being handled by security and Dominique wants more. In the heat of the moment Wilkins got the best of Michel.

I love that they slow it down and replay the punch over and over. 'Nique is still in his suit giving the 36-year-old Michel a beat down.

This just goes to show, you don't mess with Wilkins, no matter how old he is. The old man can pack a punch. Let's just say I doubt Michel will be getting his money back.
