Ja Morant, a basketball player in the NBA, will not be charged with any criminal offence related to a social media video in which he appeared to be holding a gun in a nightclub. The Memphis Grizzlies player was suspended by his team and apologised for his actions as police in Colorado launched an investigation into the incident that took place at a strip club called Shotgun Willie’s in a Denver suburb. The Glendale Police Department announced that it had closed the investigation and was not able to determine that probable cause existed for any charges, adding that no one was threatened or menaced by the firearm, and no firearm was ever found. The incident is being investigated by the NBA as taking guns onto team road trips violates league policy. The incident came a few days after a story was published by The Washington Post, which stated that Morant punched a 17-year-old boy during a casual game at his Memphis home. A security guard at a shopping mall in Memphis has also accused Morant of threatening him during an incident involving the athlete’s mother.
