Darius Morris is some serious trouble.
The former 41st pick in the 2011 NBA draft by the Los Angeles Lakers is being exposed this week for savagely beating up his girlfriend while she screamed for her life.
It was just last year when he arrested after a woman claimed he brutally attacked her, but that same woman claimed she made it all up, according to TMZ.
“A spokesperson for the NYPD tells TMZ Sports … on April 18, a woman told officers the 29-year-old pro basketball player beat her up during an altercation at a Manhattan-area home.
The woman told cops she had left the residence, and asked Morris to leave by the time she got back. But, she says when she returned, Darius was still there — and he exploded on her.
Officers say the 34-year-old woman told them Morris “grabbed her by her hair and dragged her, punching and kicking her in the head repeatedly.”
Law enforcement sources say as a result of the alleged attack, the woman sustained bruising and swelling on her eyes, forehead, and ear … and also suffered a chipped tooth and bruises on her arms and back.”
This released video might very well be the one from last year that was never sent out of the incident, likely in an effort to protect him.
Morris was a star at the Univ. of Michigan, averaging 15 points per game in the 2010-2011 season, before the Lakers took a chance on him in the draft.
He last played overseas back in 2020.
