Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley was arrested on charges of marijuana possession and concealing stolen property.

Police arrived at Beasley’s home in Plymouth, Minnesota on the night of Sept. 26 and took him into custody, according to Shams Charania and Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic.

The 23-year-old remains in custody without bail until he has the opportunity to see a judge, which may not come for another 24 hours, per The Athletic.

“At the time of the incident, multiple individuals were present at the residence. The allegations against Malik will be defended vigorously,” Beasley’s attorney Steve Haney told The Athletic.

The report adds that police have reportedly received multiple trespassing complaints at Beasley’s home in the past.

“We are aware of the situation involving Malik Beasley and are in the process of gathering information at this time,” the Timberwolves said in a statement.

The Timberwolves front office was hopeful to re-sign Beasley for the foreseeable future after they acquired him earlier this season from the Denver Nuggets.

Update: Beasley has been released from jail and there are no official charges at this time, per his attorney Steven Haney.
