NBA Star J.R. Smith caught a vandal smashing his car during the Los Angeles protests and took swift action.
Once Smith, 34, saw the man breaking the window on his truck he chased him down and “whooped his a**”.
Once Smith caught up to the assailant, he put him to the ground and kicked him in the head. The man got up off the ground and Smith laid a right hook to the man’s left cheek before two other men pulled J.R. Smith away from the assailant.
The incident was caught on film:
