Bradley Beal told assembled media an insane story about an interaction with a police officer from his past.
Beal marched for social justice reforms with teammates from the Washington Wizards on Friday and afterwards recounted a story of police harassment that happened to him just two years ago.
The Washington Wizards star alleges that back in 2018 that he was threatened by a police officer in the Washington D.C. area during a traffic stop where he was pulled over on I-495 while driving with his wife a and a friend.
The officer asked him to get out of the car then said to him, “What if I f*** up your Monday and put you in a headline and arrest you?”
Bradley Beal took part in the march and addressed the crowd that gathered in support, asking them to raise their fists in solidarity for Black Lives Matter.
At one point, he spoke directly to a crowd to express how prevalent systemic racism is. “How does the black community grow when lives are taken from them unjustly without any consequences?” he asked.
