The son of former NBA star, Glen Rice, Glen Rice Jr, was injured on Sunday night following a shooting that took place at T.I.’s Atlanta restaurant, Scales 925.
According to reports, an altercation erupted inside the popular restaurant and spilled into the parking lot. During the fight, shots were fired and that’s when Rice was apparently shot in the leg.
Per TMZ, there is surveillance video that shows Glen throwing a gun into a stairwell before jumping into a Porsche and speeding off. Law enforcement eventually pulled over the expensive car and reportedly found the former NBA player with an injury to the leg. But it didn’t end there. While stopped, police is said to have discovered 240 grams of marijuana and $6,000 in cash.
HipHollywood can confirm that the 24-year-old was arrested and booked for reckless conduct and possession of weed. We are told Rice was in the custody at the Atlanta City Detention Center and then was released to Fulton County Jail.
GR Jr. was signed to the Washington Wizards in July 2013, but after a rocky stint with the league, the athlete was waived by the Wizards in January 2015.
As for the incident outside of the soul food restaurant, law enforcement is still looking for the shooter.
