Here we go, another athlete who openly criticizes the President of The United States on life is set to be arrested for domestic violence.
According to The Federalist Papers, NBA star DeMarcus Cousins, who said in 2017 that President Donald Trump has to “get his sh*t together” is now being sought on an arrest warrant on a domestic violence charge.
It happened when his ex-girlfriend, and mother of his 7-year-old son, called police and said that Cousins threatened to “put a bullet in your (expletive) head.”
Cousin’s ex-girlfriend recorded the conversation and gave a copy of it to the Mobile, Alabama police department, USA Today reported.
“The third-degree harassing communications charge was listed on the Mobile municipal court website, although no other information was provided,” Mobile police spokesperson Charlette M. Solis said.
“We are aware of the allegation involving DeMarcus Cousins and, of course, take this claim seriously,” his team, The Lakers, said.
“We are in the process of gathering information and will reserve further comment at this time,” it said in the statement.
Defense attorney Mary Kristen Galanos, who is not involved in the case, said that a suspect is subject to arrest in Alabama after an alleged victim signs a warrant in a misdemeanor case.
“They aren’t going (to) send a SWAT team out for him,” said Galanos of Shane A. Taylor & Associates. “What usually happens is that the person is picked up on a routine traffic stop.”
In 2017, Cousins had this to say about Trump:
in 2017 it was Cousins who thought he should give life advice to President Trumpon his comments about players kneeling for the National Anthem.
“With everything that’s going on … it’s sad … It’s kind of goofy if you think about it. The leader of our nation spends more time on Twitter than actually taking care of the situations and things going on,” he said.
“I could go on and on and I don’t want to get my personal feelings involved about it… It’s getting to the point where it’s just silly.
“I think we need to refocus on the task at hand. If you’re going to be in that position, lets work on the things that you said you were going to help.
“Some of the things that need to be touched on, we need to bring more awareness too. And where that awareness is we need to do something about it.
“I feel like the least of his concerns should be what’s going on in the NFL. We’ve got world issues going on and they’re barely being talked about by him, the leader of our nation.
“He needs to get his shit together,” the NBA star said at a press conference on Media Day as his team then, The Pelicans, began training camp.
