Tim Donaghy reportedly arrested for aggravated assault, allegedly threatened man with hammer

Tim Donaghy reportedly arrested for aggravated assault, allegedly threatened man with hammer”

Disgraced former National Basketball Association referee Tim Donaghy, whose officiating career was flushed down the toilet when it was revealed he bet on games, was arrested Tuesday in Florida for aggravated assault with a hammer. Well, he's back in the news, and not for good reasons.

According to the dad, Donaghy threatened to turn the hammer on him if he came any closer, and so police were called and Donaghy was arrested. The 50-year-old told police he was only trying to save his daughter.

According to the police report, Tim believed his daughter was doing drugs with a friend at a nearby home - so he grabbed a hammer and went to get her. The site reported that Donaghy's lawyer claims the former ref did not tee anyone up with the tool and was using it only for self-defense.

One question remains: Will Donaghy put money on the outcome of his own potential court case?

Donaghy's attorney tells TMZ Sports his client did NOT assault anyone - and didn't threaten anyone - he only had the hammer for protection.

TMZ reports - with a mug shot included - that Donaghy was arrested Tuesday in Florida for aggravated assault, after he allegedly threatened a man with a hammer.
