Hassan Whiteside Buys $50K Assault Rifle, Immediately Has It Stolen

Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside reportedly purchased an M16 assault rifle with ammunition, a silencer, and a rifle bag for just $50,000 during this past summer, according to 640 AM radio host Andy Slater.

Per the report, Whiteside’s next move was to drive to the University of Miami for a workout. When he returned home the next day, he discovered the weapon was missing. After an investigation by police, it was determined that the gun was stolen when Whiteside left it in his unlocked Rolls Royce at the gun store.

The rifle was reportedly discovered weeks later in a stolen car in North Miami.

Whiteside later confirmed the gun had been stolen and recovered over the summer in a statement released through the Heat on Thursday, according to the Miami Herald.

“I have a license for the gun that was stolen from me over the summer,” Whiteside said in a statement issued through the team. “I should have secured it better and I’m glad it was recovered. It won’t happen again. It is now locked in a safe and I only use it at the gun range.”

Hopefully, Whiteside will be locking his car doors as well. A team spokesman reportedly stated that Whiteside’s purchase did not violate any team rules.
