Charles Oakley and New York prosecutors agreed to a deal in court Friday, part of which bars the former Knicks enforcer from Madison Square Garden — the site of the scuffle that led to his arrest in February — for one year.

Oakley accepted an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal, which will lead the charges to be dropped if there are no new arrests over the next six months, the Manhattan District Attorney said in a statement to USA TODAY Sports. Oakley also agreed to a one-year trespass order that makes MSG off limits.
