Even NBA legends like former Atlanta Hawk Dikembe Mutombo can be victims to petty crimes.
The Hall of Famer and Sandy Springs resident was enjoying dinner with his family in Buckhead on Father’s Day and returned to his car to find his windows smashed, according to a police report obtained Monday by AJC.com.
He told Atlanta police he and his family went inside the Landmark Diner on Roswell Road about 9:45 p.m. June 16. When they walked back to Mutombo’s Rolls-Royce Phantom around 10:30 p.m., the driver’s-side window and both passenger-side windows were shattered.
Nothing was reported stolen, according to the report. The incident was captured on surveillance video. TMZ obtained the footage.
A police spokesman said Monday no arrests have been made in the case. An investigation is ongoing.
Mutombo played five seasons of his 18-year NBA career with the Hawks. An eight-time All-Star with a 7-foot-6-inch wingspan, Mutombo has dedicated much of his retirement from the game to humanitarian work.
