Back in September 2020, Minnesota Timberwolves player Malik Beasley and his wife, Montana Yao, were facing felony charges after an incident kicked off outside their home. Beasley was charged with felony threats of violence and fifth-degree drug possession. Yao faced a fifth-degree drug possession charge as well.
Plymouth police were called to the home after two parents stated they were on a tour with their 13-year-old when they pulled up to the roped-off residence. While the family was on the shoulder of the road in front of the roped-off house, “they heard a tapping on the window of their car and looked up to see the barrel of an assault rifle on the window of their car,” the complaint states.
It was Beasley, who told them to “Get the f— off my property!” The family started to leave, but Beasley kept his gun pointed at them.
Footage has since been released of the cops showing up to his home and Beasley not complying as cops work to remove his hands from his pants and arrest him. After getting a search warrant for Beasley’s house, officers found 3 guns and more than 835 grams — or nearly 2 pounds — of marijuana in home.
Yao said the marijuana was hers and said she purchased it from a store that sells medical marijuana, “but did not know where it was located and could not produce any documentation that she can possess medical marijuana,” the complaint said.
“The marijuana recovered was in its original leafy form, which cannot be legally possessed in Minnesota,” the complaint said.
In December, Beasley pleaded guilty for threats of violence, but the drug charges were dismissed.
This past season, Beasley averaged 19.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists. He was suspended for 12 games without pay in late February in the wake of pleading guilty to a felony count of threats of violence as a result of an incident in September.
