Authorities are investigating an incident involving Cavaliers guard JR Smith, who has been accused of stealing and damaging a fan’s cellphone. According to the New York Daily News, “Smith was on 10th Ave. near W. 18th St – a short distance from the 10 Oak nightclub – about 2:30 a.m. Sunday when a 20-year-old fan walked up to him to snap a photo with his cell phone.”
This angered JR and he grabbed the phone and hurled it across the street before storming off. The victim, a resident of Pennsylvania, used another person’s phone to call 911 and filed a criminal mischief complaint with police. Sources have reported to TMZ Sports, that JR told the victim “no photos,” but the fan continued to snap one anyway.
Currently, no arrest has been made. This is not the first time JR has been investigated by authorities.
