If you ever seen the hit movie, ‘White Men Can’t Jump,’ then you can pretty much picture how this scenario went about.
For former NBA player JR Rider, him pulling out a gun was not part of a movie and he could be in serious trouble.
“Isaiah Rider’s wife was involved in a fight with another mom at a youth basketball tournament in Arizona … with Isaiah allegedly threatening to get his gun from his car, this according to the police report.
Cops responded to the tournament over reports of parents fighting — and when they got there, they spoke with Isaiah’s wife, Vanessa … who said she had been attacked by another woman for “no viable reason.”
The woman claims her son’s team had defeated the SkyRiders so Vanessa was bitter — with Vanessa calling her a “bitch” and trying to swing at her.
That’s when the woman claims Isaiah got involved — jumping over bleachers and calling for his friends to help break up the situation.
Isaiah allegedly started asking, “Who hit my son?” — and then “told his friends to get his gun out of his car.”
Fortunately, a gun was never present during this incident even though one of the complaining parties stated Rider left the building and returned.
Cops ultimately determined that the women were involved in “mutual combat” and made no arrests.
