We have reached the point where betting in this country has gone too far and fans are getting pissed at athletes over them not performing the way they expect them to and losing big money as a result.
Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal is being investigated by police in relation to his involvement in a reported confrontation with fans during a game from last week. TMZ Sports reported the Orlando Police Department is investigating a complaint filed after the Wizards’ 122-112 loss to the Orlando Magic on March 22.
The altercation began when Beal was walking to the locker room tunnel and a fan yelled to him, “You f–ked me [out of] $1,300, you f–k!” Beal reportedly turned to the fan and appeared to knock the hat off one of the guys’ heads in response to the heckle,” TMZ reported. “Beal and the fans then jawed back and forth, with Beal calling the comment ‘disrespectful.’ … Things were tense between Beal and the group—with the men exchanging a flurry of words—before the Wizards star was ushered into the locker room without further incident.”
In that game, Beal fouled out with 2:55 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Wizards trailing 110-103. The three-time All-Star finished with 16 points on 4-of-15 shooting with seven assists and five rebounds.
TMZ noted the Magic said “they are aware of the incident and are letting the OPD handle it.”
The 29-year-old is averaging 23.2 points on a career-high 50.6 percent shooting from the field and 5.4 assists per game in 50 starts.
Washington is on track to miss the playoffs for the second consecutive year.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
