Memphis Grizzlie’s Ja Morant will not face charges after he recorded himself brandishing a firearm at a Denver club over the weekend.
Police cleared him yesterday saying that despite the"concerning" images on Morant's Instagram Live stream Saturday morning, "there was not enough available evidence to charge anyone with a crime.”
Cops said the incident took place on March 4 just hours after the Grizzlies game against the Denver Nuggets at a Gentleman's club 5 or so miles from the arena.
While cleared legally, Ja is still facing potential punishment from the NBA. The league announced they have launched their own investigation that has not yet concluded.
Ja apologized for the video and said he would seek help.
The Memphis Grizzlies announced they plan to keep Ja away from the team for at least the next 4 games.
