Former NBA guard Isaiah Rider reportedly threatened to pull out a gun after an altercation broke out during a recent youth basketball tournament in Arizona, according to TMZ Sports.

Rider’s wife, Vanessa, was allegedly attacked during the altercation, which she said was for “no viable reason.” She also said her nine-year-old son was “physically assaulted by an older boy and injured during the altercation.”

Per TMZ Sports, Rider asked who hit his son and then “told his friends to get his gun out of his car.”
