Both the Palm Beach Post and the Sun-Sentinel are reporting that Will Allen may have been involved in a money dispute that might have resulted in Allen pulling a gun on somebody in the parking lot of a Bed, Bath & Beyond. The investigation by the Davie Police Department is still ongoing and no charges have been filed.
The premise of this report is that there was a dispute over money in the parking lot. A report on local TV says that Allen had to borrow money to pay gambling debts. Then when the lender demanded repayment, Allen pulled a gun on him.
Allen could potentially face discipline from the league if he's found guilty on any kind of gun charges. But it's important to note that nothing has been confirmed by the police. In fact, Lt. William Coyne says that there are varying stories on the incident:
"There was a dispute over money between Will Allen and another gentleman. Both parties came to the police station and made a report."
"We have two different stories about what happened. We're looking into the allegations to see who's telling the truth."
Will Allen only had this to say:
"I'm not even speaking on this. There isn't even a story to speak on, to be honest with you."
Hopefully Allen is right. But you have to wonder what kind of gambling debt Allen has incurred if he indeed had to borrow money to pay it off. And you also have to wonder what exactly he's betting on? Is he playing typical casino games or is he betting on sports?
This story could get ugly quickly, so let's hope for the best.
