The confrontation has taken place in the parking lot of a supermarket. Rice first punched Callahan in the face that made the latter suffer a broken jaw. The victim also lost a tooth in the process.

Unfortunately, Rice was caught by the police thanks to the witness that told the authorities the suspect’s direction. The police opened the bags that has two guns, an AK-47 assault rifle, and a Taurus .38 Special. These bags also had a bunch of bullets inside.

Other than the bags that contained guns, the cops also found another gun that was not named.

The victim was found by the police to be in a pool of blood.

When the police investigated the matter, Glen was found to be in possession of marijuana that was in the bag he is carrying at that time. The cops also arrested the player for reckless conduct due to that incident.

Another wasted talent who once had a promising season back in 2012. This is the year when he led a d-league team to a championship. He was drafted back in 2013 by the Philadelphia 76ers before his rights were traded to the Washington Wizards.

Compared to his father, he did not have a wonderful career in the league by which he only played 16 games. This is the combined games he played as a member of the Wizards in the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 seasons.
