Report: Jahlil Okafor tried to use a fake ID

Jahlil Okafor can’t seem to win on or off the court these days. The Philadelphia 76ers rookie, whose team is winless this season, is in the news again for an incident unrelated to basketball.

To catch you up in case you missed it:

–Okafor was reportedly in an altercation outside a Boston nightclub on Thanksgiving.

–Okafor was reportedly pulled over in early November for going 108 mph.

–There was a report of an altercation during which Okafor had a gun pointed at him in early October.



According to a witness and two separate reports filed by the Philadelphia Police Department and U.S. Park Rangers and obtained by, Okafor had a gun pointed at him during an argument outside an Old City nightclub on Oct. 4 after 2 a.m.

The latest report has Okafor, 19, trying to use a fake ID at a Philadelphia bar.


In late October, Okafor allegedly presented a fake I.D. at Misconduct Tavern in Center City, according to two sources with knowledge of the situation. Okafor, 19, was refused service, the sources said. One of the sources said he was surprised because Okafor is “a big guy” and “famous” and “pretty easy to recognize.”

Despite the 76ers’ woes this season, the former Young star has been the one bright spot, leading all NBA rookies in scoring with a 17.5 average and minutes at 33 per game.
