Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley was arrested Saturday and is confronting felony weapons and drug charges in Minneapolis, as per police records.
Beasley, who averaged 20.7 points in 14 games with the Timberwolves subsequent to being traded by the Denver Nuggets in February, is confronting felony controlled substance/narcotics and felony getting/disguising taken property charges, as indicated by Hennepin County Jail records.
Be that as it may, he was released Sunday without being charged, his lawyer, Steve Haney, told ESPN.
“We are aware of the situation involving Malik Beasley and are in the process of gathering information at this time,” the Timberwolves said in a statement.
In an announcement on Sunday, the Plymouth Police Department said its officials were called to Beasley’s residence a day sooner on a detailed weapons offense. The revealing people told officials they had halted their car before the house, and a “suspect walked up to their vehicle, tapped on the vehicle window, pointed a gun at them and advised them to get off of the property.”
“As the victims drove away, the suspect was observed holding the gun up to his shoulder, pointing it at their vehicle,” the police statement said.
Officials set up an edge to find the individual and recognized a solid smell of cannabis, as per the announcement. A vehicle endeavored to leave the property and was halted by police. Three individuals in the vehicle were kept and later delivered. A man, who distinguished himself as the homeowner, was outside and yelling at officials.
Officials acquired a court warrant for the property and found narcotics and various guns, one of which was affirmed as stolen, police said.
“At the time of the incident, multiple individuals were present at the residence,” Haney told ESPN in a statement. “The allegations against Malik will be defended vigorously.”
