No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson

No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson is a 2010 documentary film produced by Kartemquin Films for ESPN’s 30 for 30 series and directed by Steve James. No Crossover details the February 14, 1993 bowling alley riots of then high school basketball phenom and future NBA superstar, Allen Iverson, and how the incident, trial and eventual conviction of Iverson divided the town of Hampton, Virginia.

The documentary features camcorder footage from the February 14, 1993 riots at a bowling alley where Iverson and his young friends were accused of attacking adults with chairs. The incident allegedly stemmed from racial epithets said by the white adult high school students from neighboring Poquoson to Iverson and his friends. Iverson was specifically accused of striking a white woman. While vital to the prosecution, the videotape of the incident is unclear and it is difficult to make out any of the individuals involved. Despite punches thrown by both parties involved, only Iverson and his friends Melvin Stephens, Samuel Wynn and Michael Simmons, were charged in the incident. Iverson was sentenced to 15 years in prison, but after four months at Newport News City Farm correctional facility, Iverson was pardoned by Governor Doug Wilder and was released from custody.
