This is a strange story and I’m sure we’re going to hear more about it at some point, but for now, we have one former NBA player in jail and his neighbor a little bruised. Here’s more from Cincinnati.com:
Kirk Snyder, 25, a former Minnesota Timberwolves player, was arrested early Monday after Warren County sheriff’s officials said he broke into a neighbor’s home in the 5300 block of Commonwealth Drive in Deerfield Township around 3:40 a.m. and attacked the man while he was sleeping.
He is due to appear for arraignment on charges of aggravated burglary and felonious assault 9 a.m. Tuesday in Mason Municipal Court. A female resident told investigators she was awakened by the sound of glass breaking downstairs.
When she got up to investigate, a tall assailant pushed her aside and ran to the upstairs bedroom where he began to beat her sleeping husband, authorities said. The woman said she was able to pull the hood off the suspect’s head. The man ran out the same back door he broken in. A police canine and other information led deputies to Snyder’s nearby residence. He was taken into custody within minutes of the attack.
