Shawn Kemp Reportedly Arrested In An Alleged Drive-By Shooting
Shawn Kemp is widely considered one of the greatest power forwards in NBA history. Known for his exceptional athleticism, Kemp earned the nickname “Reign Man” for his high-flying dunks and dominant performances on the court.
Off the court however, Kemp has had to fight personal demons for a long time. From playing drunk, to having financial problems, to being arrested for drug possession, and illegal firearms, Kemp has had his fair share of altercations during and after his active career.
Now, some new allegations have made its way round the internet, and this time, they really are grim, as Kemp has reportedly been arrested in an alleged drive-by shooting.
“At 1:58 pm, an altercation between the occupants of 2 cars led to shots being fired at a parking lot in the 4500 blk of S. Steele St. One car fled. No injuries were reported. A gun was recovered. A 53-yr-old male was booked for Drive-By Shooting. The investigation is ongoing.”
According to the Pierce (Wash.) Corrections Inmate listings, six-time NBA All-Star Shawn Kemp — a legendary member of the Seattle Sonics — has been booked in an alleged drive-by shooting. https://t.co/gix0Ht9E9F
