Suns forward Michael Beasley is under investigation for a sexual assault that allegedly took place on Jan. 13, according ABC15.

Scottsdale police confirmed the investigation Tuesday.

From ABC15:

“At this point we can only say the investigation is ongoing,” said David Pubins, Scottsdale police spokesman. “We are interviewing those involved and processing any physical evidence we may have to try and determine if criminal charges are appropriate.”

Beasley, the second overall pick of the 2008 NBA Draft by the Miami Heat, played in 75 games and averaged a career-low 10.1 points per game for the Suns this season. He has two years remaining on a three-year, $18 million contract he signed as a free agent during the offseason. The former Kansas State All-American has had a history off off-court problems including substance abuse rehab and psychological issues.
