After a heated argument, Morant’s friends (4 or 5 according to the reconstruction) allegedly got into an SUV and, passing by the bus the Pacers were on, allegedly aimed a red laser at the staff members with whom they had just had the altercation. Most seriously, Morant himself would have been inside the coach at the time of the incident. There is no physical evidence, but according to the Pacers’ statement, the laser was mounted on a gun. “We felt we were in grave danger.” stated one of the threatened staff members.
