Former NBA player Steve Francis was on stage with rap performers Sauce Twinz when someone tried to rip a gold chain off his neck.
The incident was caught on video (below) last weekend in Houston, notes TMZ.
Francis' chain didn't break so he was dragged down to the floor by the unknown thief.
The chain was stolen, but the police were not called, reports Yahoo! Sports.
Francis last played basketball for the Beijing Ducks in 2010. Prior to that gig, he played for the Houston Rockets, Orlando Magic and New York Knicks.
