There have been a lot of athletes out on the streets as part of the peaceful protests to show support to the Black Lives Matters movement and to help fight police brutality. Washington Wizard superstar, Bradley Beal, was one of them. Today Beal revealed a story of a cop pulling him over and threatening to arrest him and put him in a headlock for absolutely no reason.
Beal is alleging that in 2018 he was threatened by a police officer in the Washington D.C. area during a traffic stop. The Washington Wizards star claims he was pulled over on I-495 while driving with his wife a and a friend. The officer asked him to get out of the car then said to him, “What if I f*** up your Monday and put you in a headlock and arrest you?”
