Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley was arrested Saturday night in Plymouth on charges of possession of narcotics and receiving and/or concealing stolen property, according to Plymouth police. Beasley was released from jail Sunday but the investigation into the incident is still open, according to Plymouth police Sgt. Jeff Stimac.
According to a news release from Plymouth police, officers were called after someone reported a weapons offense after stopping their car in front of a residence in Plymouth. While stopped, a suspect came out, tapped on the window of the car and pointed a gun at them, telling them to get off the property. As the car drove away, the suspect held the gun up to his shoulder, pointing it at the car, the release said. Police then established a perimeter to try and locate the suspect. Police noticed the smell of marijuana as well.
While the police had the perimeter set up, a car attempted to leave and police stopped the car. Three occupants in the car were detained and later released. There was another male, who identified himself as the owner of the property, outside yelling at officers. Officers obtained a warrant to search the residence and found narcotics and "numerous" guns, one of which was stolen, according to the release.

Police arrived at Beasley’s home in Plymouth, Minnesota, on Saturday night and took the 23-year-old into custody.

Steve Haney, Beasley’s attorney released the following statement to The Athletic: “At the time of the incident, multiple individuals were present at the residence. The allegations against Malik will be defended vigorously.”
According to a source, police have received multiple trespassing complaints on Beasley’s home in the past. The Timberwolves are holding a three-week, voluntary camp at their practice facility in Minneapolis, which was granted by the NBA to the eight teams that did not qualify for the Orlando bubble. Beasley participated in individual workouts in the first week of the camp, but was not with the team last week when they opened five-on-five, group workouts.

In his 2004 book, Embry describes himself hearing a slightly different story in a different setting, with Laimbeer as narrator and Embry himself as old-but-intimidating comeback-deliverer: In a different conversation with Laimbeer, he told me that after every game in the [Richfield] Coliseum, as a sign of unity, each of the Pistons would spit on my car, which they passed en route to their bus. He stepped away from me as he told the story, not quite sure how I would react, and he seemed genuinely surprised when I said, “Good for them. It probably needed to be washed anyway.” Embry also says his wife, Terri, was particularly displeased about the spitting because it was all on the passenger side. Whichever version of this story you prefer, it sure sounds like 1989 Pistons — all of them — spat on a car together.
