“So I guess that gave him a reason to search the car,” Beal said. “I was being respectful. We stepped out of the car – my wife and I and one of my friends at the time. We all stepped out and sat on the side of the highway, whatever that cement block thing is on the side of the highway. So we’re sitting on that, and I asked the officer if I could put my hood up because I’m literally on the side of the highway and there’s traffic and people slowly driving by, looking at it like, ‘What’s going on over there? Who’s that?’ …

“He said, ‘For what?’ I said, ‘I would just like not to be seen out in public.’ He goes on to say, ‘Well, who are you?’ What do you do?’ And I say, ‘Sir, you’ve seen my license. I hope you would know that my name is Bradley Beal. But I play basketball for the Washington Wizards.’”

Beal, who remains undecided about playing in the NBA’s season restart in Orlando, said that’s where the conversation took a strange turn.

“His next question was, ‘Well, how much money do you make a year?’ ” Beal said. 

‘Officer, I don’t want to be a smartass, but I think I make more than you per year.’ ”

Then the exchange turned dark.

He said, ‘I can arrest your (expletive) right now and (expletive) up your headline and have you on SportsCenter on Monday,’ ” Beal said. “For what, you know? Because I had too dark of a tint. That’s a ticket and let me go.

"And instead, it was one, get out of the car. Searched us. Sit on the side of the highway. Searched the car. Find nothing and then proceed to say, ‘I will arrest you – just to (expletive) up your Monday headline.’

“Not arrest me because you found anything. Not arrest me because I did something wrong. But arrest me because you can. That’s the (expletive) we deal with in everyday life."
