DETROIT (AP) -- Police are investigating an altercation between Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert and a former executive of his mortgage company at a suburban Detroit hotel.
Birmingham police Chief Richard Patterson said on Friday it involved Gilbert and David Hall, a one-time senior vice president at Rock Financial.
Patterson says the "simple altercation" occurred during an event on March 21 at the Townsend Hotel.
Gilbert did not immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment. A company spokeswoman declined to comment. The Associated Press also sent an e-mail to Hall on Friday seeking comment.
Rock Financial is part of Livonia-based Quicken Loans Inc., of which Gilbert is chair and founder.
