Charlotte Bobcats assistant coach Bob Beyer was charged with resisting arrest Thursday night following an altercation with bouncers at a bar in Sarasota Springs, New York.
The details, via the Associated Press:
The 51-year-old Beyer was also charged with second-degree obstructing governmental administration and disorderly conduct. All the charges are misdemeanors.
According to a police department press release, Beyer’s acquaintance, Edward Parenteau, allegedly assaulted one of the bouncers and “Beyer and (Ryan) Chartrand attempted to stop officers from arresting Parenteau and they were arrested. Beyer then began fighting with the police and was charged accordingly.”
The Bobcats, who hired Beyer on July 1, released a statement saying that the team would not comment until the legal process has taken its course.
Beyer was an assistant coach with the Orlando Magic for five seasons from 2007-2012, before spending last season as an assistant with the Warriors. The Bobcats’ new head coach, Steve Clifford, similarly served on Stan Van Gundy’s staff in Orlando during those same years.
