The couple maintain that they were invited by an unknown person to enter the
house, but then Brown chased them away with a rifle, shooting five or six
times toward them as they exited.

Brown told police he thought the pair were breaking into his home. Police
found one shell casing in the area.

Brown, 34, played in the NBA for the Cleveland Cavaliers (2006-07 to 2007-08),
Chicago Bulls (2007-08), Charlotte Bobcats (2008-09), Los Angeles Lakers

(2013-14), New York Knicks (2013-14) and Miami Heat (2014-15).

He was part of NBA championship teams for the Lakers alongside Kobe Bryant in
2009 and 2010.

In 408 career NBA games (60 starts), Brown averaged 7.6 points, 1.9 rebounds
