120 days in jail for Beasley

The Wolves' escort pointed a rifle at a couple who parked next to their house, where drugs and weapons were found, at least one stolen.


Malik Beasley, one of the stars of the Minnesota Timberwolves, has been sentenced by a Minnesota judge to 120 days in jail. The guard will be able, at least, to serve the sentence when the NBA season ends after pleading guilty to the charges against him, crimes for threats with use of violence.

Beasley, 24, signed a four-year, $ 60 million deal earlier this season, proof that the Wolves want him at his core as an assistant scorer to Karl-Anthony Towns and D'Angelo Russell. Beasley, who arrived before the close of last season's winter market from the Nuggets (like Juancho Hernangómez) is averaging more than 20 points per game for the Wolves. This season he is at 20.5 with 5.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists. Juancho and Ricky Rubio's team marches 6-18, the worst in the West and at the bottom of the NBA with the Detroit Pistons. His big star, Towns, tested positive for COVID and has only played four of the team's 24 games. Beasley hasn't missed any.

The player's lawyer has confirmed that he will also have to complete an anger control therapy and that he could finally serve part of the sentence under house arrest and with an electronic control device, given the protocols and sanitary restrictions of Minnesota prisons in these times of pandemic. Additionally, Beasley will not be able to use alcohol or drugs during a three-year supervised stretch. “We are very satisfied with the result of a process that is helping Malik to be a better person, to make better decisions.”

Beasley was arrested in September at his home in Plymouth, Minnesota. The police received the notice of some citizens who were looking for a house in the area, they parked in front of Beasley's and he (who was not identified at the time) got out to his car and pointed a rifle at them while demanding that they leave. In addition, the report said that the victims (a married couple and a 13-year-old son) "saw the suspect hold the weapon over his shoulder and point it in their direction as they left." When the agents arrived at Beasley's house, they noticed a strong smell of marijuana and stopped a car in which three individuals were trying to leave, one of them a Beasley who was yelling at the agents and who ended up identifying himself as the owner of a house in the that narcotics and numerous weapons were found, at least one of them stolen. The player, who has received the support of the Wolves throughout this ordeal, apologized at the time: “I'm not that type of person. I humbly ask forgiveness for my actions. ”
