Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley pleaded guilty on Monday after an incident in September where he allegedly pointed an assault rifle at a family that approached his home, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

Beasley had initially faced a felony drug charge from the incident, too. However, that has been dismissed.

Any jail time or home confinement handed down will not be longer than 120 days and will be delayed until the end of the 2020-21 season — which is set to kick off on Tuesday.

A couple and their 13-year-old daughter reportedly pulled up in their SUV and stopped along the road outside of Beasley’s rental home on Sept. 26 during a parade of homes tour. Beasley’s house had been roped off.

While they sat there, Beasley reportedly approached the car with his assault rifle and knocked on the window before telling them to “get the f--- off” his property. He allegedly kept the gun pointed at the vehicle as it drove away.

Police then returned after multiple 911 calls to search his home for the rifle, which they say they found along with a 12-gauge shotgun and a handgun. They also allegedly found 1.8 pounds of marijuana in the home, which Beasley’s girlfriend, Montana Yao, said was hers. She was also arrested and was facing drug charges and is due in court on Dec. 29.

Police also said they found surveillance footage from the home that showed Beasley grabbing his rifle when the family reported the incident.

Beasley averaged 20.7 points in 14 games for the Timberwolves last season, where he was to traded midseason by the Denver Nuggets. The 24-year-old reached a new four-year, $60 million deal with Minnesota last month. It’s unclear what type of discipline the NBA will hand down, if any.
