Wikipedia is on the ball.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Artest

Opening paragraph of article:
Metta World Peace (born Ronald William Artest, Jr., November 13, 1979) is an American professional basketball player and rapper who is currently with the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA. World Peace gained a reputation as one of the league's premier defenders as he won the NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award in 2004. He was a major participant in the Pacers–Pistons brawl and is known for his sometimes eccentric, outspoken behavior.

You mean since A-Fraud?

Anyways, as one pundit put it a few months ago, he did this so there would be headlines stating: "David Stern Suspends World Peace."

World Peace ejected from game
World Peace was ejected for a flagrant foul late in the second quarter Sunday.

World Peace had just dunked on a fast break and was celebrating his basket while running upcourt when he ran into Harden. While World Peace pounded his chest with his right arm, he threw his left elbow right over Harden's shoulder and into the back of his head.

Harden dropped to the court and stayed down for about a minute. Oklahoma City's Serge Ibaka and teammates challenged World Peace, but they were kept apart.

The bastard should be in jail, pending indictment. And hit with a large civil suit thereafter.

Or hunted down and shot by George Zimmerman who better bring a .44 magnum or an elephant gun.

Another Laker in serious trouble:

Lakers center Jordan Hill charged with assault for allegedly choking family member
Hill was traded to Los Angeles as part of a March 15 trade deadline deal that sent longtime Lakers guard Derek Fisher to Houston. He made seven regular-season appearances for the Lakers following the trade, including one start, averaging 4.7 points and 4.4 rebounds in 11.7 minutes per game.

The third-year pro out of Arizona, a former first-round pick of the New York Knicks, made his postseason debut Sunday in L.A.'s 103-88 victory over the Denver Nuggets in Game 1 of their first-round Western Conference playoff series, contributing 10 points and 10 rebounds in 24 minutes off the Laker bench.
Looks like they'll have to go even deeper on the bench with World Peace suspended and now this.
