Twitter threat involving NBA’s Chris Paul draws law enforcement scrutiny

Los Angeles police are reviewing a potential social media threat made against the wife of Clippers basketball player Chris Paul in the last few months.

Following a Los Angeles Clippers’ loss in early February, one Twitter user allegedly threatened to kill Paul’s wife, Jada Crawley, and frame Paul for the crime. The social media message sparked concern among security experts who work with the team and the episode was reported to the LAPD’s threat management unit, according to a law enforcement official who declined speak for attribution.
