One of the most controversial stars in the NBA today received some good news as it pertained to his sexual harassment case.
Los Angeles Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins was accused of domestic abuse in late August, with third-degree harassment charges later filed in an Alabama court. The charges levied against Cousins have been dropped, per his attorney.
Cousins was allegedly taped by his ex-girlfriend and mother of his seven-year-old son telling her that he would "put a bullet in your (expletive) head.” A copy of the call was given to the Montgomery County police.
Cousins, who signed with the Golden State Warriors last season, averaged 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds as he worked his way back from an Achilles injury. Cousins will not play in his first season as a Laker, as his campaign ended prematurely thanks to a torn ACL.
Cousins faces plenty of obstacles as he prepares for yet another comeback, but an ongoing legal battle will not be one of them.
