Fact Check: Was Dillon Brooks arrested? Viral tweet debunked as Internet reacts to cameraman incident with memes
Ja Morant has been a PR nightmare for the Memphis Grizzlies since the start of March and Dillon Brooks recently got fined by the NBA. Morant has been suspended by the league for eight games, while Brooks shoved a cameraman during their game against the Miami Heat.
A report on Twitter concerning Brooks went viral on Thursday, stating that the Grizzlies guard was arrested by Memphis Police. The claim was made by Buttcrack Sports, a satire and parody account on Twitter, which means the report is false.
Buttcrack Sports uploaded a video of the alleged arrest, but it was just a weird video of several policemen putting a trash can inside an ambulance. The page could be insinuating that Brooks is a trash player, considering he’s having a terrible season.
