Four men were arrested and charged for beating Malone and taking jewelry from him worth about $15,000.

Malone claims Harden acted in retaliation for his social media post that criticized the athlete for overcharging children to attend his youth basketball camp.

KTRK-TV reported in November that Harden was subpoenaed to answer questions about the incident. However, Harden was not arrested.
