Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley will spend four months in a workhouse after pleading after the NBA team's season is over.
The Hennepin County Attorney's Office announced Tuesday that Beasley was sentenced to 120 days in jail after pleading guilty to one count of felony threats of violence from an incident that happened last September.
Beasley, 24, is expected to report to the Hennepin County Adult Corrections Facility at 9 a.m. on May 26, at which point the Timberwolves' season should be over. His reporting date is subject to change if the team's season is not over, but a deep playoff run is not expected as Minnesota has the worst record (6-18) in the Western Conference.
Beasley could serve the sentence under electric home monitoring if the COVID-19 situation proves to be a health risk during the time he's scheduled to serve his sentence.
Beasley is accused of pointing a gun at a family who was on the Parade of Homes tour in late September.
According to the charges, just before 3 p.m. on Sept. 26, Plymouth police were called to a home on the 18500 block of County Road 6 on a report of a man who pointed an assault rifle at a family.
The victims who called police said they were on a Parade of Homes tour with their 13-year-old child when they pulled up to the roped-off home, assuming it was closed and decided to look for another home to view, charges say.
That's when the victims heard a tapping on their window and saw Beasley pointing the rifle at them, telling them to "Get the [expletive] off my property," the complaint says. The victims drove off while Beasley pointed the gun at them.
The victims identified Beasley in a photo lineup as the man with the rifle, charges note. Police also spoke with a 911 caller who drove by the scene, reporting he saw a man pointing a gun at the window of a black SUV that was stopped along the road. The witness described the assault rifle.
Video from surveillance cameras in the home showed footage of Beasley grabbing the SG Works automatic long gun assault rifle from the mudroom closet at 2:50 p.m. and walking out of his garage, charges say. At 2:58 p.m., he is seen entering the garage and putting the gun back in the closet. Police received 911 calls about the incident at around 3 p.m.
