NBA Rumors: Did Former Miami Heat Star Alonzo Mourning Commit a Hit-and-Run?
NBA Rumors have begun to spread around former Miami Heat center Alonzo Mourning committing a hit-and-run over the week.
'Zo was partying it up for current Miami Heat forward's Chris Bosh's birthday on Saturday. He allegedly was driving his sports car home on Sunday morning and struck a vehicle that was pulled over on the side of the highway.
Here is a quick recap of the events that went down according to the CBS Sports Eye on The Basketball team:
Candelario had just been in a separate, unrelated accident and was stopped in the street to exchange insurance information and do all the usual riff-raff. Mourning then supposedly came speeding in and smashed into Candelario's car, and then took off. According to the police, Mourning returned 45 minutes after the accident, in a different vehicle.
This story could get ugly. If he was coming back from a wedding early in the morning...do we assume he was impaired in some way?
It's too early to speculate but Morning felt the situation was serve enough to already release a statement to the media:
I have been completely cooperative and have met with the police, and now that the facts are straightened out, I think everyone will see that I didn’t cause the accident and didn’t cause any injuries.
The 20-year old college student claims he was clearly on the outer part of the lane and out of the flow of traffic while he was exchanging information with the other car involved in the accident.
What really may comeback to haunt the former center is the fact he fled the scene. If you have nothing to hid and you accidentally ram your car into another one, there is no reason to speed off and leave the victim in your dust.
Stay tuned as more details will surely emerge in a story that could be a black-eye on a stellar resume 'Zo has amassed over the years.
