Police are investigating Twitter threat involving Chris Paul and his wife

Police in Los Angeles are investigating what appeared to be a recent threat made on social media against the wife of Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul.

There have been no arrests in connection with the investigation, L.A. police Lt. Andrew Neiman told the Los Angeles Times, and it is continuing. A Twitter user in early February allegedly threatened to kill Jada Crawley, Paul’s wife, and set Paul up for the crime. The team’s security experts then reported the threat to the police.

TMZ, which first reported the investigation, reported that the threat, sent March 14, said: “@CP3 if I knew where you lived I’d probably kill your wife and frame you for it. I watch dateline I get away with it.”

The website also noted that Paul had reported another problem with a social-media user and contacted police about an Instagram user who has been harassing him and his wife for over a year. Citing what it says are official documents, Paul alleges that the troll did not physically threaten him or his family, but posted “annoying comments” on family photos. For instance, on an October 2014 photo, the poster referred to Crawley as “Jay Leno chin.”
