According to court documents, 23-year-old Lee — a top high school recruit who played for UCLA from 2013-2015 — was involved in an altercation at a weed dispensary back in 2016 that turned violent.
Officials say Lee and at least two other men entered Kings Palace Marijuana Dispensary in Jurupa Valley in Riverside County on June 30, 2016, when someone from the group shot a store employee.
Officials say a security guard in the store returned fire and, they say, Lee and the other suspects bolted out of the place before law enforcement arrived.
After a 3-year-long investigation into the incident, prosecutors now say the whole thing appeared to be a robbery gone wrong because in the arrest warrant, obtained by TMZ Sports, a key witness claims Lee’s role “was to grab drugs and money and run.”
Prosecutors put out the warrant for Lee’s arrest last month. On Friday, Lee was arrested in Los Angeles on charges of attempted murder and attempted robbery — both felonies.
