The LAPD responded to a call Friday night about a man with a gun outside of a residence and, upon arrival, the suspect shot at them, said LAPD spokesperson Tony Im. He played basketball for the UCLA Bruins from 2009-2011. In 2014, Honeycutt joined Khimki, a Russian professional team, on a two-year contract.
He had been playing overseas since 2013. He played just 24 games in the National Basketball Association across two seasons in Sacramento before he was traded in February 2013 to the Houston Rockets, who waived him a month later.
The site has since removed Honeycutt's name from the report.
