Malik Beasley of the Minnesota Timberwolves will most likely have to watch the rest of the NBA playoffs from behind bars as he serves his 120-day sentence.
Beasley was booked into Wright County Jail in Minnesota on Tuesday, preparing to serve his sentence for the unusual gun incident in September 2020, according to jail and court officials.
Authorities alleged that Beasley exploded on a family as they were in his driveway, charging that the 24-year-old NBA player flashed a gun at them and ordered them to flee.
Beasley was initially charged with two felonies: felony threats of violence and felony narcotics possession, but prosecutors agreed to drop the charges months later.
Beasley pled guilty to making threats in exchange for the narcotics charge being dropped, and he was sentenced to 120 days in prison.
Beasley was supposed to start his sentence on May 26… but according to a court official, it was pushed back to June 1.
When Beasley was arrested, he posed for a mug photograph, and as you can see, he wasn’t delighted to be in jail.
The NBA player has had an eventful few days… remember, he just apologised publicly to his wife and family for his fling with Larsa Pippen?
This season, Beasley was a standout for the T-Wolves, averaging 19.6 points per game in 36 games.
