Ja Morant is currently facing some massive allegations from a 17-year-old. As we reported back in January, Morant was sued by a teenager who claims he was beaten up at Morant’s home. Overall, there was very little known about the alleged altercation. In court documents, it was said that Morant punched the teenager in the face. This happened after the teen threw a ball at Morant during a pick-up game. Although the teen claims it was just a pass, Morant reportedly got upset and started beating up the 17-year-old. Subsequently, Morant’s brother allegedly got involved and started beating him while on the ground.
However, Morant was interviewed by police where he revealed that he felt like the teen was threatening him. He said that his accuser threw the ball aggressively and then tried to square up. Moreover, Ja said that the teen told him that he would “light this house up.” This had Morant’s family feeling as though things could escalate in a horrific fashion. Despite all of these accounts, Morant is still being hit with some shocking allegations. According to Molly Hensley-Clancy of The Washington Post, the anonymous teenager accused Morant of threatening him with a gun.

“The teenage boy told police that after Morant punched him, the NBA star emerged from his house with a gun in the waistband of his pants, according to police interviews obtained by The Post that not been previously reported,” Hensley-Clancy wrote. No matter how you swing it, these are very damaging allegations against the Grizzlies superstar. Additionally, he is accused of threatening a mall security guard. Morant had previously been implicated in an altercation involving the Pacers and some members of his entourage. Needless to say, none of this is a good look for the young star.
