Report: Ex-NBA player Glen Rice Jr. arrested on battery, robbery charges
The former Wizard gets in trouble with the law again
TMZ acquired the Atlanta-area police report about Rice's arrest which details the incident. According to the police report, Rice and Callahan got into a disagreement in the parking lot of a supermarket. The argument became physical when Rice punched Callahan in the face, breaking his jaw. Rice then grabbed two bags from the car, which they both arrived in and ran away from the scene. In the bag were guns, which police retrieved after catching Rice.
When cops arrived, they found Callahan in a pool of blood -- and the witness pointed to where Rice fled. Cops tracked down Rice and arrested him ... and found 2 bags nearby, hidden under leaves.
Inside the bags -- 2 guns (an AK-47 assault rifle and a Taurus .38 Special) and a bunch of bullets.
Cops say a 3rd gun was found in the Porsche.
There's more ... cops say Rice also had roughly $2,700 in cash and 6 cell phones on him at the time.
This is the second time Rice has gotten in trouble with the law. In October 2015, Rice was shot in the leg during an altercation at an Atlanta restaurant. During the ensuing investigation, police arrested Rice for reckless conduct and possession of marijuana, which was in a bag that he was carrying at the time of the shooting.
Rice is the son of former NBA sharpshooter Glen Rice but his professional career never panned out like his father. He briefly played for the Washington Wizards in the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons but was waived in January 2015. Rice then played in the D-League for the Houston Rockets' D-League team. He did not play in the NBA last season.
