The downfall of Javaris Crittenton has been a stark reminder that sometimes professional basketball want to exercise that Thug Life. Glen Rice, Jr. the 24-year-old struggle hooper son of NBA 3-point maestro Glen Rice, is dangerously toeing that line as well. As it turns out, the victim who was shot and subsequently arrested for possessing copious amounts of marijuana and cash at T.I.’s Atlanta restaurant was indeed the veteran NBA D-Leaguer.
On Sunday, October 25, shots rang out at the newly opened Scales 925 which left Glen Rice, Jr. fleeing the scene as he leaked blood all over the pavement and nylon basketball shorts.
According to TMZ spies, Rice tossed a gun he was possessing on a stairwell right before he got into his Porsche, which was later stopped by police. The police report states that following the altercation involving Rice and five or six other men, he was shot and later detained with 240.4 Grams of marijuana, a US Passport and a black bag containing $5,953 dollars in cash.
He was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana.
During the time of the incident, T.I. was nowhere near the premises, a statement his reps backed in a statement to Hip-Hop Wired.
