Scottsdale (Ariz.) police have confirmed that they're investigating a sexual assault claim against 24-year-old reclamation project Michael Beasley. The incident reportedly took place on Jan. 13.
No details have been released, and police have put out only a brief statement:
“At this point we can only say the investigation is ongoing,” said David Pubins, Scottsdale police spokesman. “We are interviewing those involved and processing any physical evidence we may have to try and determine if criminal charges are appropriate.”
Beasley just finished the first year of a three-year, $18 million deal with the Suns, who figured he was worth the risk. The off-the-court stuff has been bad, if minor: Weed, weed, rehab, booze boat, more weed, fan mushing, driving violations. The on-the-court stuff hasn't been much better.
