Last month, Moses Malone Jr. accused Houston Rockets shooting guard, James Harden, of sending goons to attack him after openly criticizing the basketball player’s youth camp of costing too much. He felt that Harden was somehow making it impossible for inner city kids to attend the camp.
Malone alleges that Harden got upset by his remarks and sent four men to beat him up while having a night out at V Live Vintage Steakhouse in Houston.
Malone Jr. ended up filing a police report, and this week, those four men have been charged for the assault.
They have been identified as Darian Blount, who was a bouncer at the club, Kavon Boutte, Oscar Wattell and Deavion Lewis.
Officers say that the men did confirm that they attacked the man in retaliation of his Facebook post, however, Kese Smith, a public information officer with HPD, says “there’s nothing to indicate Harden is tied to this.”
The men have been charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, but have not been taken into custody.
