A long series of accusations

This new case occurs just three days after the 'Washington Post' reported other complaints against Morant.

The events date back to last summer, when in the space of four days, Morant was accused of threatening a member of the security force of a Memphis mall during an altercation, and of threatening a 17-year-old boy with a gun. after a fight during a basketball game at the player's home.

The fight in the parking lot of the shopping center with a member of the security force resulted in a complaint to the police by the alleged victim, but there were no arrests.

Alleged threats to a minor

Four days later, Morant was charged with "repeatedly striking the head" of the minor and throwing him to the ground.

The police verified the injuries caused by the blows, according to the 'Washington Post'.

The boy also assured the police that, after the fight, Morant went to his house with "a visible gun" in his pants and with his hands on the gun.

In addition, on February 6, it was learned that Morant's entourage was under investigation by the NBA after being accused by the Indiana Pacers of having pointed a red laser, possibly from a weapon, against members of his coaching staff after an altercation on January 29 in Memphis.

The NBA assured through a spokesperson that its investigators interviewed several witnesses and reviewed the images recorded by security cameras and that, despite confirming that there was a strong altercation, for the moment they could not "corroborate that some people have threatened others with a gun."

At the Grizzlies-Pacers game on Jan. 29, Morant got into a third-period altercation with Chris Duarte and, after the game, the Grizzlies leader confronted members of the visiting team in the bus area.
