Over the course of his 16 years in the NBA, Metta World Peace proved that he was one of the most intense — not to mention crazy — players that the league has ever seen.
Well, a certain individual has not only managed to match his craziness, but exceed it ... and it's scaring the life out of the former NBA champion and his family in a big way.
According to TMZ Sports, Peace has filed a restraining order against a woman named Miesha Shakes, who he says has been stalking him and his family since last year.
In court documents obtained by TMZ, Peace said that Shakes has done everything from slashing his tires to tossing a brick through a window in his building and even physically attacking his 19-year-old daughter while "waiting outside for my 13-year-old daughter after school."
Peace had asked a judge to keep the woman "one million" yards away from wherever he, his family, their home and school are ... and the "Earth" as a whole. The judge responded by ordering Shakes to stay 100 yards away from his requested places, except the planet, of course.
If her prior stalking actions weren't scary enough, Peace said he also got an email from her in which she threatened: "I apologize in advance, I'm going out with a bang. This will be the worst thing to ever happen in Westwood. Call cops I'm ready."
The documents have Peace adding that the deranged woman has also threatened to attack him with a knife and damage his car, all while inexplicably accusing him of raping women.
Metta is scheduled to have a hearing in the case before the end of this month. Better sooner than later to end this.
