The oldest son of Memphis Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins was arrested and charged with one felony count of filing a false offense report, according to legal documents obtained by The (Memphis) Commercial Appeal.

Alberto Jenkins, 24, lied to police when he said he was kidnapped and his car was stolen in an armed robbery after being approached by four men while leaving his shift at Tug’s Casual Grill on March 21, according to the affidavit. 

He said one man was armed, and they told him to drive them somewhere “to pick something up,” according to an affidavit.  After driving, Jenkins said the men let him leave but took his car, cell phone and $750 in cash. He contacted police hours later and  couldn’t show where he was dropped off.

According to court documents, when Jenkins didn’t want to prosecute and was “confronted by inconsistencies in his story,” he admitted that he lied and was looking to purchase cocaine from a group of men.

They took him around to look for the drugs, but he “became scared and abandoned his vehicle and property leaving in the possession of these unidentified males.”

The car was discovered after an accident was reported at Third Street and Brooks Road.

Jenkins was booked Monday and released after posting bond. He is scheduled to be arraigned June 15.

Taylor Jenkins, 36, is in his second season with the Grizzlies, who are 22-22 and in contention for a playoff spot in the NBA’s Western Conference. The Grizzlies host the Utah Jazz on Wednesday.

Jenkins has four children, including two college-aged sons from his wife Chantall’s previous relationship, according to The Ringer

The Grizzlies did not immediately return a request seeking comment.
