Former NBA Player Charles E. Smith shot over Gambling Debt
On October 21st, former NBA player Charles E. Smith was shot in Bowie, Maryland. A police investigation has concluded that Smith was shot over a gambling dispute.
According to police spokeswoman Sgt. Michelle Reedy, Bowie police found “a large quantity of cocaine and evidence of a gambling operation” during their search. While nothing is confirmed at this point, it is believed that Smith was running a gambling operation to make income.
After being shot, Smith remains in fair condition in a hospital. The only leads on the suspect is that he is a 5’5″ black male with long black hair who wore jeans, a brown jacket, and a red hat. A nearby neighbor named Dinko Milijkovic was shocked by the shooting as he told police, “Nothing this serious has happened in the five years we’ve been living here. This is a nice neighborhood, really quiet, with a lot of kids about.” After looking at the evidence, Charles Smith’s presence may have altered the neighborhood somewhat.
It’s hard to believe, but the 6’1″ Smith was once a promising basketball star at Georgetown University. After averaging 18.7 points per game as a senior point guard and earning the Big East Conference Player of the Year award, Smith went undrafted. However, he did manage to land a spot on the Boston Celtics roster for a short while. During this stint, he hit two Boston University students with his car and left the scene. Smith was later apprehended, convicted, and forced to serve two and a half years in prison.
After being released from prison, Smith tried out for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Unfortunately for Smith, he was cut from the Timberwolves before the start of the season, thus ending his bid at a return to the NBA.
