Anthony Edwards Seconds after missing a shot, Timberwolves star Edwards was allegedly involved in an incident that has him in some legal trouble. 

Anthony Edwards and the Minnesota Timberwolves had their season come to an end on Tuesday, losing 112-109 to the Denver Nuggets in Game 5 of their first-round series.

And seconds after missing a shot, Edwards was allegedly involved in an incident that has him in some legal trouble.

“Denver Police confirmed their involvement on Wednesday and said that Edwards was cited for two cases of third-degree assault following the game,” Jake Shaprio of said.

He then described the incident further.

“A law enforcement source said Edwards picked up a chair and swung it, striking a security guard in the back,” Shapiro’s report detailed. “Then the thrown chair also hit a second worker. A source confirmed the incident and said both employees were injured and asked to file charges.

“Denver Police Department’s Jay Casillas told Denver Sports on Wednesday that Edwards swung a folding chair and struck two women who were working at the time. Police say both women were injured, neither seriously.”

After missing the game-tying three pointer, Edwards quickly ran off of the court. Cameras caught him as he got to the tunnel. In the video, he does appear to be moving an object, possibly a chair. But it looks more like he’s moving it out of his way than actually trying to hurt someone.

It will be interesting to see if any more comes from this. If the footage from the end of the game is all that we have, it’s enough to say that Edwards should have been more careful while leaving the floor, but certainly not much more than that.
