It feels like there has been a few alarming incidents between NBA players and fans recently.
Obviously, we are all aware of the numerous fans who have been kicked out of games for making derogatory and disrespectful comments to players and we also know of Ja Morant’s run-in with multiple people too.
But now there is word that another star is in hot water because of his actions.
Bradley Beal of the Washington Wizards is apparently under police investigation for battery after getting involved in a confrontation with hecklers last week, according to TMZ Sports.
Beal allegedly knocked a hat off of a fan’s head after the fan yelled at Beal for making him lose $1,300 in a bet.

We don’t know how serious this accusation against Beal is or how it’ll end.
It is important to note that, as with all claims like this, Beal could be facing consequences from both law enforcement and the league as well.
The NBA usually investigates matters like this so they may do some digging and decide to fine or even suspend Beal.
Beal has been averaging 23.2 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 5.4 assists a game this season while his Wizards are clinging to the 11th spot in the East.
Their chances of making the playoffs are getting slimmer by the day and if Beal were to miss time because of this situation, they would become close to non-existent.
Will this be the last time this season that we hear about a fan and player getting into an altercation?NEXT: Kristaps Porzingis Just Had His Best Night In Years
