Former NBA player facing felony charges, and he's lucky it isn't worse


Former Washington Wizard and Georgia Tech standout Glen Rice Jr. was arrested on July 25th and was charged with felony robbery, aggravated battery and marijuana possession. If one eye witness account is to be believed then that might be getting off easy for Rice. TMZ Sports obtained a police report from that night.

The incident took place in DeKalb County and the report says that Rice beat up a former NCAA hoops player so badly that he lost a tooth and broke the guy's jaw. The witness that saw the scene unfold said that Rice and former Tulane player Jordan Callahan pulled into a Kroger parking lot in a white Porsche. They got out to have a conversation and during the exchange, Rice clocked Callahan --- knocking out his tooth in the process.

Rice then grabbed two bags from the car and ran down the street. When cops arrived on the scene they found Callahan on the ground in a pool of blood and went after Rice when the witness told them where he ran off to. The police found the two bags hidden under some leaves and found an AK-47 assault rifle in one bag and a Taurus .38 Special in the other. There was also a bunch of bullets found.

Cops say they found a third gun in the Porsche and that Rice had about $2,700 in cash as well as six cell phones on him at the time. It's really a miracle he wasn't charged with anything else from the sound of the story and this isn't Rice's first run-in with the law.


Last October, he was charged with reckless conduct and possessions of marijuana (240 grams) after he was shot in the leg in an altercation that began at a downtown Atlanta restaurant. He was also dismissed from Georgia Tech by then-coach Brian Gregory after a charge of permitting unlawful operation of a vehicle.

Rice was drafted in the 2013 NBA Draft by Philadelphia and was traded to the Washington Wizards on draft night. The 35th overall pick played a total of 16 games between 2013 and 2015 before going down to the D-League and playing for Houston in the summer league in 2015.
