Malik Beasley is a free man. On Tuesday, the Minnesota Timberwolves star posted to his Instagram story that he was released from jail only 78 days because he “followed the rules” and behaved well while incarcerated.
Beasley was sentenced to 120 days behind bars after he pleaded guilty to one felony count of threats of violence. He was facing felony controlled substance/narcotics and felony receiving/concealing stolen property charges, according to Hennepin County jail records.
The Plymouth Police Department said officers were called to Beasley’s residence on a reported weapons offense and the reporting party told officers they had stopped their car in front of the house, and a “suspect walked up to their vehicle, tapped on the vehicle window, pointed a gun at them and advised them to get off of the property.”
“As the victims drove away, the suspect was observed holding the gun up to his shoulder, pointing it at their vehicle,” the police statement said.
In November, Beasley, a restricted free agent, reached a four-year, $60 million contract with the Timberwolves. The fourth year is a team option.
