Lillard Gets Some Unwanted Attention
(KUTV) Former Weber State University guard Damien Lillard finished his season by winning the NBA’s Rookie of the Year award. Monday, he’s getting the wrong kind of publicity in Portland.
According to multiple reports on Portland TV, and in newspapers, two brothers say they were assaulted by Lillard’s bodyguards, or entourage, after one of them snapped a photo of Damien.
The victims told police that others who were with Lillard saw them take the photos and began to assault them.
Portland police responded to this incident at 2:30am Sunday morning, while police are investigating.
Sgt. Pete Simpson say Lillard is not a suspect and remained at the scene to speak with officers.
