Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley pleads guilty after arrest from parade of homes incident
Minnesota Timberwolves security guard Malik Beasley pleaded guilty on Monday following an incident in September in which he aimed an assault rifle at a family approaching his home, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.
Beasley was also initially charged with drug abuse based on the incident. However, this was rejected.
The jail term or sentence imposed will not last more than 120 days and will be delayed until the end of the 2020-21 season, which is scheduled to begin on Tuesday.
Beasley arrested after Parade of Houses incident
A couple and their 13-year-old daughter reportedly stopped in their SUV and stopped in front of Beasley's rental home on September 26 during a house parade on the street. Beasley's house had been cordoned off.
While they were sitting there, Beasley allegedly approached the car with his assault rifle and knocked on the window before telling them to "take" his belongings. He allegedly kept the gun pointed at the vehicle as it drove away.
Police then returned after several 911 calls to search his home for the rifle they allegedly found along with a 12-gauge shotgun and pistol. They also reportedly found 1.8 pounds of marijuana in the apartment, which Beasley's friend Montana Yao said was hers. She was also arrested and charged with substance abuse. She will be tried on December 29th.
Police also said they found surveillance videos from the house showing Beasley grabbing his rifle when the family reported the incident.
Beasley averaged 20.7 points in 14 games for the Timberwolves last season, where he should be traded by the Denver Nuggets in the mid-season. The 24-year-old signed a new four-year, $ 60 million deal with Minnesota last month. It is unclear what type of discipline, if any, the NBA will pass on.
