Metta World Peace nearly got into fight with twerking deli owner


I like Metta World Peace. I like Ron Artest a lot more, but Metta World Peace is pretty neat too.

Overly eccentric, World Peace has calmed down from his days with the Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers but trouble still seems to find the former Defensive Player of the Year award winner.

Case in point? Recently, World Peace, who signed with the New York Knicks after being amnestied by the Los Angeles Lakers was in a Los Angeles area deli, apparently looking for some lunch.

Hoping to get some salad, World Peace began to ask some questions which apparently the deli owner didn’t care for, asking World Peace to not lean on the glass. That lead to Artest breaking the glass, which lead to an all out shouting match which apparently ended with the deli owner twerking.

Yeah, I can’t really explain it much further without it sounding any dumber than it already does.

I’ll let Ron-Ron do the rest:

Yeah, I don’t even.
