Kyle Kuzma is undoubtedly one of the top stars of the Los Angeles Lakers who certainly has a very bright future ahead of him in the sport. However, it seems he recently suffered a personal setback.
According to a report by TMZ, Kyle Kuzma’s SUV was stolen on Sunday morning and was then taken on a joy ride by the thief before it crashed during a high-speed chase around Hollywood.
Towards the end of the chase, the driver was said to have rammed into a police officer’s car and sent an officer to the hospital to treat minor injuries. The driver of the Chevy Tahoe crashed into a gate at Belmont High School around 1:30 AM
The driver was then arrested and taken into custody, where it was said that he will be booked for multiple charges. The suspect was also taken to a hospital to be treated with an apparent leg injury.
It was further reported that the vehicle was indeed Kyle Kuzma’s but it was assured that Kuzma had absolutely nothing to do with what happened. Kuzma’s manager drives the car and is the one who filed the police report.
This comes at a very unfortunate time as Kyle Kuzma was recently traded to the Wizards in exchange for Russell Westbrook. We will keep you updated on this ongoing case.
