Beasley is charged with fifth-degree drug possession and felony threats of violence while Yao is charged with fifth-degree drug possession. Both are 23. They have a 1½-year-old son together. The alleged incident took place on Sept. 26.

The Timberwolves released a statement Thursday acknowledging the charges.

According to the charges, a couple and their 13-year-old daughter pulled up to the shoulder of the road in front of Beasley’s home in their SUV while touring the parade of homes. Beasley’s house was roped off. As the family sat in the SUV, Beasley allegedly approached the vehicle with an assault rifle and tapped on a window.

He pointed the gun at the vehicle and told the family to “get the f--- off” his property, according to prosecutors. The criminal complaint described the weapon as an “all-black assault rifle with a forehand grip” and a scope. He kept the gun pointed at the vehicle as it drove away, according to the complaint.

Police search allegedly led to more guns, pot

The alleged incident prompted multiple 911 calls and led police to search Beasley’s home for the rifle. When they entered the home, they say they detected an “overwhelming odor” of marijuana and found 1.8 pounds of the drug in the home. They claim they found a rifle matching the one described in the report in addition to a 12-gauge shotgun and a handgun.

Police say they also seized surveillance footage from the home showing Beasley grabbing his rifle and taking it outside around the same time the family reported the confrontation.

Yao told police that the marijuana belonged to her and that she obtained it at a medical marijuana dispensary, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Beasley averaged 20.7 points per game in 14 games with the Timberwolves last season after a midseason trade from the Denver Nuggets. He has a court appearance scheduled for Nov. 19. Yao is due in court on Dec. 29.
