Rapper T.I. opened his own upscale soul food restaurant called Scales 925 earlier this spring in Atlanta. On October 25, NBA player Glen Rice Jr. was shot in the leg following an altercation that occurred near the restaurant.

Rice is the son of the now-retired NBA player Glen Rice Sr., who played for the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers, and Houston Rockets, among other teams. Rice Jr. currently plays for the NBA D-League’s Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

A police report states that the younger Rice and the group of men he was dining with were asked to leave the restaurant because they were arguing, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. They continued to fight outside and restaurant employees heard a gunshot.

The report does not state who shot Rice in the leg. Officers found a backpack containing 240 grams of marijuana, a possibly stolen revolver, and almost $6,000 at the scene, according to CBS46. Rice was later charged with reckless conduct and marijuana possession.
