Former NBA player and future Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett is seeing some family drama unfold in the most public of lights.

An explosive report by TMZ Sports on Wednesday explains that Garnett’s younger sister, Ashley Danyelle Phelps, has been arrested in South Carolina on armed robbery and bomb threat charges after attempting to rob multiple check cashing stores.

“Cops say Ashley Danyelle Phelps tried to rob a Check Into Cash in Greenville — and told employees she had a bomb. Someone pressed a panic button and Phelps fled without any loot,” the report reads. “The next day, cops say Phelps tried to hit another Check Into Cash store — but failed so she went to an Advance America shop instead and once again told employees she had a bomb.”

Police responded to the latter incident, only to capture Phelps a short time later. The 37 year old would ultimately be charged with two counts of armed robbery, two counts of making a bomb threat and one count of attempted armed robbery.

She’s being held in the¬†Greenville County Detention Center without bond.

A source close to the Garnett family told TMZ Sports that Kevin and Ashley used to be close but “no longer speak.”
