Transcript for NBA Star Ray Allen's Home Broken Into
Now to the story of a basketball star launching a full-court press if you'll excuse the pun this morning, against the way police handled a scary incident at his home. Ray Allen can't understand why the whole thing is being treated as a silly prank, especially when his wife feared for the lives of her family, when the intruders barged into the room where their young children were sleeping.

The coral gables police department says they're continue to work with the Florida attorney's office and work with the Allen family. I don't think we have seen the last of this.
