Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley is facing multiple charges of drug possession and threats of violence after an incident at his Minnesota home last month, according to police reports obtained by the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Now his parental rights are being challenged.
Via Star Tribune:
Hennepin County officials want to have the 19-month-old son of Minnesota Timberwolf Malik Beasley put under court-ordered protection citing the felony weapons and drug charges filed last month against the boy’s parents as well as new evidence of possible maltreatment.
A petition filed this week in District Court by the county’s Human Services and Public Health departments challenges the parental rights of Malik Beasley and wife Montana Yao and levels further allegations against the couple growing out of an altercation the 23-year-old basketball player had in late September with a family outside his Plymouth home.
The child protection petition said police seized from the home a loaded semiautomic shotgun on an office floor and “accessible to (the boy),” a handgun, a rifle, more than 1 ¾ pounds of marijuana, three notebooks suspected of being drug ledgers, nine dextroamphetamine pills and various firearms supplies.
Police say the shotgun was reported stolen in Denver, the same city where Beasley played for the Nuggets until he was traded to the Timberwolves in February. He averaged 20.7 points in 14 games with the Wolves this past season.

A statement from Beasley’s attorney reads, “We are cooperating with the law enforcement investigation and will carefully review the discovery and charges in the coming days.”
The Timberwolves also gave a statement on the situation, “we are aware of the charges involving Malik Beasley. We take these allegations seriously and will let the legal process run its course.”
Beasley will make his first court appearance on Nov. 19th and Yao will make hers on Dec. 29th.
Beasley is without a contract for next season.
