Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley pleads guilty to threats of violence
Monday, Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley pleaded guilty to one count of threats of violence in connection to a Sept. 26 incident.
According to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office, he could face up to 120 days in the Hennepin County workhouse.
If Beasley completes three years of probation, the felony charge will be reduced to a misdemeanor.
A criminal complaint alleges that at 3 p.m. on Sept. 26, police were sent to a home on the 18500 block of County Road 6 in Plymouth on the report of a man pointing an assault rifle at a family.
When officers arrived, Beasley walked down the driveway yelling at them. Officers spoke with the victims who had contacted the police and said that they were on a Parade of Homes with their 13-year-old when they pulled up to a roped-off entrance, assumed it was closed, and decided to look for another home to view.
The victims say that they were on the shoulder of the road in front of a roped-off house at the time of the incident.
The complaint goes on to say that the victims heard a tapping on their window and saw Beasley pointing a firearm at them and telling them to get off his property. The victims then got back on the road and saw Beasley pointing the rifle at them as they drove off.
In subsequent photo lineups, the victims identified Beasley as the assailant with the rifle.
