Armed Texas Man Stops NBA Player Who Broke Down His Door

posted on June 1, 2016

A Dallas, Texas, man used his firearm to stop a man, later identified as an NBA player, who kicked down his front door and then tried to break into his bedroom as he slept.

According to local media reports, the man was sleeping early Saturday morning when he heard his apartment door being kicked open. After New Orleans Pelican guard Bryce Dejean-Jones busted the front door open and then kicked in the bedroom door, the man grabbed his gun and fired several shots, stopping the attack.

ESPN reported that the apartment complex sent an email to its residents Saturday morning, saying that Dejean-Jones was “believed to be breaking into the apartment of an estranged acquaintance (but) inadvertently broke into the wrong apartment.” Later reports indicate that Dejean-Jones apparently thought he was breaking down the door of his ex-girlfriend, who is the mother of his young daughter and lives in the same apartment complex.
