Thunder ball boy investigated after sending death threats to Patrick Beverley
Police in Oklahoma City are investigating a Thunder ball boy after he allegedly sent threatening tweets to Houston guard Patrick Beverley. An inadvertent collision between Beverley and Thunder star Russell Westbrook appears to be the source of the ball boy’s anger.
Westbrook is sidelined indefinitely with a torn meniscus.
17-year-old Mitchell Brown has since deleted his Twitter account but Deadspin caught the offending tweets in time.
Not surprisingly, Mitchell Brown is using the “Twitter hacked” defense. A defense that has yet to work for any single person in the history of the internet.
