A number of athletes carry guns these days. The bigger question is where Porter was headed at 2 a.m. when he crashed? He is a terrific talent and probably has the highest ceiling of all the young players on the roster, but there’s a reason he was a lottery talent who fell to the last pick in the first round last year. He had some flags in his past. 26. “At his core, he’s a really good kid, and he’s had a challenging upbringing,” Cavs GM Koby Altman said. “It’s on all of us to help him achieve his potential.” 27. Altman wouldn’t comment on a disturbing Cleveland.com report alleging that Porter punched a woman in the face in August and pulled off her weave. Altman called it “unsubstantiated” because there were no charges filed.

“At this time, Mr. Porter threw his drink in the face of [an alleged victim] and then ripped the wig off her head and then punched her in the left side of her face causing slight swelling visible at the time of this report,” the police report says. Cops say they spoke with a witness who saw the whole incident and backed up the two women … claiming the Porters were the aggressors. In fact, the witness says she saw Kevin Porter with one of the women’s “weave in his hand when he then punched [one of the women] in the face causing her to [fall] into the refrigerator.”
It’s a miracle Kevin Porter Jr. wasn’t injured during a scary car wreck Sunday night … cops just released photos from the scene, and his car was mangled. Cops say the Cleveland Cavaliers player wrecked his Mercedes Benz at around 2 a.m. in Ohio, and when they responded to the scene … officers claim they found a loaded handgun and what appeared to be weed inside the vehicle.
State Highway Patrol stopped Porter near Canfield, along State Route 76. Troopers booked Porter about 7:30 am and released him on $4,000 bond about three hours later. Other details surrounding the arrest are not known at this time.
The Cavs are aware of the situation regarding Porter. They are currently gathering more details before making a statement. Porter, 20, had a promising rookie season and is considered one of the team’s building blocks. He averaged 10.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 50 games after being selected with the 30th pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
A Mahoning County Sheriff’s Office report reveals Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard Kevin Porter Jr. was arrested Sunday on weapons charges.
