Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley was released from jail on Sunday (Sept. 27) after a Saturday (Sept. 27) night arrest for the possession of narcotics and receiving and/or concealing property.

Minnesota’s Plymouth Police Department said its officers responded to Beasley’s residence on a reported weapons offense, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.

The individuals called the police said that they had stopped their car in front of a house and a suspect walked up to their vehicle, tapped on the vehicle window, pointed a gun at them and told them to get off of the property.

The responding officers said they established a perimeter to try and locate the suspect when they smelled marijuana.

A vehicle attempted to leave the property but was stopped by police. Three people in the car were detained and later released. A man, believed to be Beasley, was outside yelling at the officers and identified himself as the homeowner.

The police obtained a search warrant for the house and found narcotics and numerous guns, including one of which was confirmed as stolen. They took Beasley, 23, into custody.
