The incident occurred following a game between the Wizards and Orlando Magic on March 21st. According to the police report, two fans were waiting in the visitor’s tunnel to meet the players when one yelled, “you made me lose $1,300 you f***.” Officers say Beal approached the fans and swatted the hat off one of their heads, hitting him.
