The Glendale Police Department has issued a press release in which they announced that NBA star, Ja Morant, won’t face criminal charges over a gun-taunting incident at a nightclub few days ago.

Morant, on March 4, was captured in a live Instagram video showing off what appears to be a pistol. This happened at a night club called Shortgun Willies in the City of Glendale, Colorado.

Following the incident, the 23-year-old Memphis Grizzlies point guard received tons of backlashes from all manner of persons.

However, four days after the incident, the local police authorities say Morant won’t be charged. In a press release sighted by NBA Republic, Grendale Police Dept. said: ” Although the video was concerning enough to prompt an investigation, there was not enough evidence to charge anyone with a crime.”


The press release also indicated that “on the night in question the GPD did not receive any calls for service at the nightclub regarding a weapon of any type. Subsequently, no disturbances were reported, and no citizens or patrons of the club came forward to make a complaint. The investigation also concluded that no one was threatened or menaced with the firearm.”

Meanwhile, the Grizzlies announced on Saturday that Morant would not play the team’s next two games, at least.

Since the incident, the team have played two games without the player. Unfortunately for them, they lost the two games to the Clippers and the Lakers.
