Tony Parker was among the many that were injured last week during a bottle-throwing-brawl between Chris Brown and Drake.
San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker says he suffered a scratched retina on one of his eyes during a New York City nightclub brawl involving singer Chris Brown and members of hip-hop star Drake’s entourage.
Parker, wearing dark sunglasses, described the incident Friday in Paris during a news conference posted on YouTube. He said he expects to be sidelined for about a week while the French team prepares for the Summer Olympics.
Parker said he was wearing a “therapeutic” contact lens and had to go to an emergency room for treatment after arriving in Paris.
Parker said: “I was with my friend Chris Brown and me and my friends took some punches, so I’ll be missing the start of the French team because I can’t do anything for a week except keep the lens in and then take drops.”
Police said Brown, his girlfriend and his bodyguard were among several people injured during the bottle-hurling fight early Thursday at W.i.P in SoHo.
Parker said “they started throwing bottles everywhere. I don’t know what happened. At first it was OK, but then it started getting worse and when the plane landed it was really hurting so I went straight to the ER.”
Another injured party-goer…
Another innocent female victim in the Chris Brown vs. Drake fight … who claims she was also hit by a flying bottle when things got violent inside of the W.i.P. nightclub.
TMZ spoke with 21-year-old Veronica … who tells us she was hanging at a table with her friends Wednesday night when the brawl broke out.
“I heard people screaming … so I tried to get away from the action and hid behind a couch.”
While she was trying to hide, Veronica says someone trampled her, stepping on her head, which caused a massive knot on her forehead. Veronica claims she also suffered a deep gash on her hand, which she says was caused by a bottle.
Veronica was taken to an ambulance .. where she saw another female victim, Hollie C., who had also been hit by a bottle and was gushing blood from her forehead.
Veronica tells us, “I plan on suing the club over the incident.” She’s unsure if she will take legal action against Chris Brown or Drake … but adds, “I’m trying to see my best legal options.”
