Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley was arrested Saturday night in Plymouth on charges of possession of narcotics and receiving and/or concealing stolen property, according to Plymouth police.
Beasley was released from jail Sunday but the investigation into the incident is still open, according to Plymouth police Sgt. Jeff Stimac.
“We are aware of the situation involving Malik Beasley and are in the process of gathering information at this time,” the Wolves said in a statement.
According to a news release from Plymouth police, officers were called after someone reported a weapons offense after stopping their car in front of a residence in Plymouth.
While the car was stopped, a suspect came out, tapped on the window of the car and pointed a gun, telling them to get off the property. As the car drove away, the suspect held the gun up to his shoulder, pointing it at the car, the release said. Police are investigating the identity of the person who pointed the gun.
Police then established a perimeter to try and locate the suspect. Police noticed the smell of marijuana as well.
While the police had the perimeter set up, a car attempted to leave and police stopped the car. Three occupants in the car were detained and later released.
There was another male, who identified himself as the owner of the property, outside yelling at officers. That man is believed to be Beasley, according to Plymouth director of public safety Mike Goldstein.
Officers obtained a warrant to search the residence and found narcotics and “numerous” guns, one of which was stolen, according to the release.
At the home on Mooney Lake, several no trespassing signs were posted at the end of the driveway Sunday along with a yellow rope blocking traffic from entering the property. A neighbor said Beasley recently purchased the home that had been on the market for months.
Beasley is a restricted free agent the Wolves hope to re-sign after trading for him in February. He averaged 20.7 points in 14 games with the Wolves this season.
Beasley, 23, is not participating in the voluntary group workouts the Wolves are undertaking, their first workouts as a team since the NBA postponed its season March 11 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Coach Ryan Saunders said Sunday Beasley had participated in individual workouts leading up to the last week.
“This is a player-driven program. Completely voluntary. So, that’s what I know on that,” Saunders said.
