Phoenix Suns' Morris twins accused of beating former mentor

PHOENIX (AP) - The Phoenix Suns' Marcus and Markieff Morris are being investigated on allegations that they beat a former mentor.

Phoenix police say they are seeking aggravated assault charges against the Morris twins and three others in the alleged January attack.

According to police documents made available Wednesday, Eric Hood was leaving a basketball game Jan. 24 at a Phoenix sports complex when he was approached by one of the five.

Hood told police that five people, including the Morris brothers, repeatedly kicked and hit him.

Police say Hood suffered a fractured nose, abrasions and a large bump on his head.

In a statement, the Phoenix Suns said they are aware of an investigation but would have no further comment.

The 6-foot-9 twins became teammates in 2013 when Marcus was traded to the Suns.
