MOBILE, Ala (WKRG) — CBS Sports is reporting that the Mobile Police Department are dropping harassment charges against Mobile native and NBA All-Star DeMarcus Cousins.
The charges stem from a police report filed by Cousins’ ex-girlfriend in August after she alleged that he threatened to “put a bullet in (her) f—ing head” after she did not allow his son to attend a wedding. The threat was heard in an audio clip published by TMZ, where a man, alleged to be Cousins, and a woman, alleged to be his ex-girlfriend, argue over the phone. Towards the end of the audio, the man is heard making the threat.
Two days after that audio was released, an arrest warrant was issued for Cousins in Mobile, Alabama on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge. Cousins’ ex-girlfriend was also trying to obtain a restraining order against the basketball player in Alabama.
We reached out to Mobile Police for a comment on why the charges were dropped.
