Cleveland, Ohio – Cleveland Cavaliers swingman Kevin Porter Jr., arrested on Sunday in Mahoning County on suspicion of possessing a gun and marijuana, was punched and punched by a woman in the face during an August fight in downtown Cleveland. He was accused of ceasing weaving. According to police reports.
Cleveland police told the two women involved in the fight that they would have to liaise with the city’s prosecutor’s office if they needed to press charges against Porter and his sister. Porter has not been charged until Tuesday.
According to the police report, Porter released her before the police incident.
Porter’s attorney Alex Spiro released a statement on Tuesday, stating: “There is no truth to the allegation, which is why the accusation is nowhere to be found.” Cavs spokesman Tad Carper did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
According to police reports, the incident occurred just after midnight on August 16 at the Stone Block apartment building at West Lakeside Avenue and West 6th Street in the Warehouse District.
According to police reports, two women and two other witnesses involved in the fight gave the same version of events to the police.
The police report stated that the women were in an apartment on the sixth floor of the building when Porter’s sister and a 26-year-old woman exchanged words. Porter’s sister is not named in the police report, according to police, the woman was punched in the face.
According to police, the 19-year-old friend of the woman reported that Porter found a reduction in her hair weaving and punched the left side of her face. A witness told police that Punch knocked the woman against a refrigerator.
Another man, whose name the police did not know at the time of the report, jumped into the fight and, according to police reports, “threw the 19-year-old woman around”.
The two women told the police that they left the building, called the police and waited for the officers to arrive.
Authorities noted that the 19-year-old woman had mild swelling on the left side of her face and the 26-year-old woman had broken nails and a lump on her forehead. Both refused to be investigated by Cleveland EMS.
Officials wrote in the report that they tried to reach the apartment building to interrogate more witnesses, but they could not get inside.
Porter was arrested by Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers at around 2 a.m. Sunday after his car crashed on Interstate 76 near Ohio 534 in Milton Township. Troopers said the driver’s fatigue contributed to the crash and Porter was not suspected to be impaired.
Troopers reported finding a loaded .45-caliber handgun and suspected marijuana inside the car. He was booked into the Mahoning County Jail and released on $ 4,000 bond.
Porter was charged with first-degree misdemeanor drug abuse and traffic citation for handling a firearm in a motor vehicle, improperly controlling and driving without a valid license at Mahoning County Court No. 4 in Austintown .
He pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges and did not plead guilty to felony charges. A future court date has not yet been set.
Porter averaged 10 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.2 games per year in his battered season last year. He was a first-round draft pick from the University of Southern California in 2019.
