We are now getting a second view of Anthony Edwards and his chair toss after an elimination game on Tuesday night.
Denver police have cited Minnesota Timberwolves shooting guard Anthony Edwards for third-degree assault after he allegedly picked up, swung, and threw a folding chair that hit two Ball Arena security guards.
However, a second video from the stands seemingly shows that he never struck anyone.
Edwards’ actions occurred after Minnesota lost 112-109 against the Denver Nuggets in Game 5 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series, ending the Timberwolves’ postseason run in the process. The defeat ended with Edwards missing a game-tying three-point attempt at the buzzer.
The original shot came from the NBA TV broadcast that showed Edwards running straight to the tunnel and tossing the chair to the side as he sprinted to the back
Denver Police Department spokesman Jay Casillas told Jake Shapiro of Denver Sports 104.3 The Fan that the chair hit a pair of female security guards who were working at the time. The source told him that the chair first struck one security guard in the back before it hit a second guard.
Both employees reportedly suffered minor injuries and asked to file charges, per Shapiro.
Denver police reportedly held up the Minnesota bus following the game to cite Edwards, per Shapiro.
State law for third-degree assault carries a punishment of up to 18 months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.
The 21-year-old Edwards just finished his third NBA season, averaging 24.6 points per game.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
