Not good news!

Snatching incarceration from the jaws of freedom?
You can take the boys out of Philly, but you can’t take Philly out of the boys. It is obvious that Hood did something to instigate this response, but the response was out of line for anyone, especially NBA players.
@jaybate-1.0 does this mean jail time? Scary!
Did not Marcus get involved in some aggravated incident at a bar on a visit back to Lawrence last year? Those multi-millions could dwindle quickly if the twins get involved with civil suits and extended legal representation. FOE!
In Arizona these are he definitions and likely penalties:
Under Arizona criminal law (revised statues), assault charges range from misdemeanor assault to felony aggravated assault. The statutes for assault also include charges for endangerment and threatening.
A misdemeanor charge of assault can result from:
- Physically injuring another person,
- intentionally placing another person in “reasonable apprehension of imminent physical injury”, or
- touching another person with them intent to injure, insult or provoke.
Any actual physical injury (#1) will result in a Class 1 misdemeanor charge for assault. A Class 1 misdemeanor has a maximum sentence of 6 months in jail and a $2500 fine.
The threat of injury (#2) will result in a Class 2 misdemeanor charge for assault. A Class 2 misdemeanor has a maximum sentence of 4 months in jail and a $750 fine.
Touching with intent to injur or provoke (#3) will result in a Class 2 misdemeanor charge for assault. A Class 3 misdemeanor has a maximum sentence of 30 days in jail and a $500 fine.
Aggravated Assault is a felony charge
Aggravating factors that may may an assault offense an aggravated assault include:
Any assault that results in a “serious physical injury”
- causes temporary but substantial disfigurement or fracture
- an assault using a deadly weapon
- if the victim is restrained or captive
- if the perpetrator is an adult, and the victim is a child 15 years old or younger.
- is committed after entering the private home of someone
- if the victim is a police officer, prison guard, firefighter, prosecutor, teacher, or medical professional.
An aggravated assault charge is a Class 3 Felony. Under Arizona law, a class 3 felony offense carries with it a penalty of 5-15 years in prison for a dangerous offense, for which an aggravated assault qualifies.
Second offense aggravated assault charges increase the severity to a possible prison sentence of 10-20 years.
Aggravated factors in under Arizona laws are extremely complicated. Please contact an attorney for a full understanding of the exact penalties you could be facing if found guilty of Aggravated Assault charges in Arizona.
I will guess that the charges will be amended to a felony assault after a private financial settlement is reached and the injured party refuses to testify. Any more, that’s the American way, sue the wealthy and get a big payday.
@REHawk I heard from a reliable source that was started by a ex-hometown player that walked out on paying for his tab. Hmmm
Yep. At the nightclub at the new Oread Hotel.
It was 3 +years ago…
@JayHawkFanToo As someone once declared, “Time does fly.” Shucks, at my age I’m beginning to wonder what I just ingested from the breakfast table 50 minutes ago. Seems like the twins must have still been wearing Jayhawk singlets 3+ years back.

“does this mean jail time? Scary!”
Doubtful… more like plenty of community service and an expensive lawyer bill… twice… one for the criminal case and one for the civil case.
Oh… I’m sorry… I forgot… twins! Lawyer X 4!
Holy H. Moly! Between the cost of legal representation, the eventual probable financial settlement with the victim, and no-pay games of suspension levied by the league, that 4-year $52 million dollar deal is bound to take a huge hit. The loss will probably amount to more than poor ol’ Cliff Alexander will pocket in his first 3 years of NBA play. Just imagine the future culprit lining up to climb into the heads of the twins, offering up a ready-to-be-broken nose or a few bruised or dangling limbs for a piece of what’s left of that $52 million pie!
Hey… I’d hit myself in the nose and break it for $2 million!
After this, the twins should wear shirts that say TARGET on them, and I don’t mean the dime store!
@drgnslayr Just like jumpin’ into the LOTTERY! Did you ever imagine that cutting yourself in for a piece of that NBA money could be so easy?
Yeah… all those decades of blood and sweat basketball and I DID end up making my living from the NBA! Brilliant!
@drgnslayr No ACLs, no rotator cuff fix-its, no lingering arthritis. Just a bent nose and a few painful bruises. Ten minutes of agony, and then SHAZAM! Winter in the Bahamas.

Actually… I had the detached patella and ACLs, partial rotator cuff, broken ribs, and arthritis. The nose I already had fixed 20 years ago so I could breathe again. It would be nice to be compensated for all that. I can handle another nose correction after the check clears… might splurge for a knee replacement, too.
So when are the twins due back in Lawrence for a visit?

@drgnslayr My O My! Someone in the KNOW would have thought you must have played for Bill Self; and never missed a one of those proud 33 minutes that he inserted you into every single contest. Save the surgeries until late April or May!
Amen brother, I know exactly what you are saying. When I was young I thought time stood still…now it looks like it skips entire years…

As I understand it this family friend insults the boys mother and they get pissed. If they just go at him one at a time I would be fine with it. One on one fights happened now and then in our crowd to our mid 20’s. The problem is a patten of problems. And this time they ganged up on one guy-and to his credit he was trying to get away from them. . Add celebrity and money. Here comes the cops and robbers, er lawyers. (Ps-if someone here is a lawyer no malice-just humor.)
