That’s what it’s about
The German basketball star Dennis Schröder was stopped by the police.
There was a suspicion that the player’s car had been stolen.
After a few minutes, the misunderstanding was cleared up.
After the home win against the San Antonio Spurs, NBA professional Dennis Schröder was stopped by the police on his way home. The German’s van was stopped on Thursday evening on suspicion that the car was stolen. The Los Angeles Lakers point guard had to step out with his hands up and was briefly handcuffed. A friend who was driving the car was forced to lie on the ground at a gas station with his arms and legs spread. Minutes later the clarification came: It was a misunderstanding.
Schröder sat in the back of the big van. After being urged by the police to slowly get out, he did so with his hands on his head, as the 29-year-old described the events on his YouTube channel. “When I was with them, they lowered my arms and gave me handcuffs. But also really jerky. And I think to myself: Hey, what happened?” Schröder reported.
“It was like being a criminal”
“If I tell you, there were 20, 25, 30 cars at the end. So real alarm. I see shotguns, pistols, Uzis and I have no idea what kind of guns they had. It was like being a criminal doing something. That was crazy. I’ve never seen anything like that,” Schröder said.
The police thought the car was stolen. Schröder was then able to clarify that the license plates came from his Cadillac, which he had sold a year earlier. “In the end they did well and helped us. Then everything cleared up. Luckily nothing happened to anyone. Then we got home safely, »said the family man.
