He threw a ball at Pacers fans. The police are investigating

Police have confirmed they are investigating an incident involving Milwaukee Bucks guard Patrick Beverley and Indiana Pacers fans during the final minutes of a playoff game in Indianapolis last week. Video of the game shows Beverley, who was on the Milwaukee bench, throwing a ball at a Pacers fan who was apparently heckling Bucks players. He missed the male fan and hit a female fan in the side of the head, Athletic reported. The man threw the ball to Beverley, who immediately shot it back. Sources told Athletic that “obscenities were said to Beverley in the lead-up to the escalation.”

A spokesperson for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said Indianapolis star that the department is aware of the May 2 incident at Gainbridge Fieldhouse “involving an NBA player and a civilian.” The spokesperson said IMPD detectives are “currently investigating this situation and are taking all allegations seriously.” He said investigators will review the video footage and speak with the parties involved before referring the case to the prosecutor’s office.

The incident happened with just over two minutes left in the game — and in the Bucks’ season. They were eliminated after the 120-98 loss to the Pacers in Game 6 of the series. Beverly addressed the incident at the Pat Bev podcast CNN reports on Wednesday. He said he’s “called a lot of things in this competition,” but what was said to him during the game was new. “Still inexcusable,” he said of his behavior. “It doesn’t matter what was said. I have to be better and I will be better.” Beverley said Pacers fans were “great,” but a handful of them went a little “too far.” (More Milwaukee Bucks stories.)
