Kaitlin McCulley of KTRK:
The district attorney apparently found Malone’s claims credible.
TMZ Sports has learned … the D.A. has charged 4 men for the June 25th incident — in which Moses Malone Jr. says he was pulling up to V Live when he was rushed by a group of guys who threatened him over the Facebook post. Malone claims he was beaten down, someone snatched his $50k chain and at least one person in the group flashed a 9mm handgun.
Malone told cops one of the alleged assailants — Darian Blount — is a bouncer at V Live … and Harden is a “prominent customer at the location.”
According to the criminal complaint, obtained by TMZ Sports, Malone told cops … Blount said, “he had disrespected James Harden and that he need to be punished after that.”
Blount and the 3 other men have each been charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.
Harden was not charged.
