Morant had reportedly gone to a high school to resolve an issue between a teenager and his younger sister.

Ja Morant has been in the news for a plethora of dubious reasons. Overall, these headlines about Morant have gotten people extremely worried about him. After being seen with a gun on Instagram Live, he was subsequently suspended indefinitely. Now, there is this sense that he will not play the rest of the season, which is disastrous for the Grizzlies. Moreover, the league is investigating his situation, and if they see any wrongdoing involving the weapon, he could end up with a massive 50-game suspension.

Now, TMZ is reporting that Morant was allegedly involved in another altercation back in September. According to the report, Ja Morant's sister got into a verbal argument with a student at Houston High School in Tennessee. Apparently, they each hurled insults at each other, and Morant's sister subsequently called him to help resolve the issue. Morant then showed up with his father and mother. Furthermore, witnesses claim that there were a lot of men with Ja, who were supposedly part of his crew.

Ja Morant Not Charged

They all allegedly went inside of the school's gym, where the other girl was watching a volleyball game. Ja's mom confronted the girl, and when police showed up, one of Morant's friends allegedly intimidated people in the crowd. He allegedly knocked a phone out of someone's hand and even threatened to pull a gun. However, police say no guns were involved in this spat. After all of this took place, the mother of the other girl tried to press charges. This subsequently led to an investigation in which Morant was being looked at for "intimidation." In the end, he was never charged.

This story does not end there, however. The Grizzlies' head of security was asked to come to the school. From there, he talked to the principal, who asked him to tell Morant that they cannot trespass on school grounds. Needless to say, this is an instance that the Grizzlies were fully aware of. This continues to be a developing story, so stay tuned to HNHH for updates.
