Report: Officer Suspended for Filming Delonte West While Shirtless and Handcuffed

On Monday, a video clip of former Cleveland Cavalier Delonte West went viral on social media.

The video was recorded by a police officer in Prince George’s County in Maryland. He was suspended on Tuesday following an investigation.
According to a police statement, officers responded to a call about a fight near the MGM National Harbor casino, which is located adjacent to the Potomac River. They found out that West and a man who he knew had gotten into an argument earlier in the day.
According to police, that man refused to press charges against West.
Another video also surfaced yesterday of a man who was believed to be West getting beaten up while lying face down on a freeway in the Washington, D.C. area.
Apparently Delonte West was seen getting beat up in the street this Morning. I went to school with him and it’s crazy to see just how his life has gone downhill since the NBA. pic.twitter.com/chm6Sbu9h6

It’s unknown if this incident had anything to do with West being detained.
West had a fairly productive eight-year NBA career as a role player, most notably with the Cavs in the late 2000s. Since leaving the NBA in 2012, he’s reportedly been homeless and dealing with mental health issues.
