Suns' Beasley under investigation for alleged assault
Summary of 3 articles · Updated May 7, 2013
Should the investigation find anything, Beasley’s status with the Suns could come into serious question, regardless of his contract that has two years remaining. Scottsdale police are investigating Phoenix Suns forward Michael Beasley in connection with an alleged sexual assault. Scottsdale Police are investigating but have not charged Michael Beasley for a reported sexual assault that took place at the Suns forward’s home. It wasn't clear if Beasley had legal representation. There is a common and largely accurate perception that Beasley is not a particularly helpful presence on a professional basketball team. A woman brought the complaint to Scottsdale Police, and Scottsdale Police spokesman Dave Pubins told the newspaper, “There is no booking photo as he was not arrested or charged with a crime. This investigation is ongoing.” The news surely brings a negative cloud over the hiring of general manager Ryan McDonough, who has more than enough on his plate in hiring a head coach and beginning preparations for the upcoming NBA draft.
