• DeMar DeRozan chased an intruder out of his Los Angeles home in November
  • The burglar broke into the wrong house and had been targeting Kylie Jenner's home
  • DeRozan says he has been through worse situations in the past

DeMar DeRozan of the San Antonio Spurs made headlines recently for chasing off a burglar who broke into his home in Los Angeles on Nov. 19. It turns out that the man, later identified as Justin Bergquist, entered by mistake and was targeting the home of Kylie Jenner.

DeRozan recently spoke about the incident, appearing to be unfazed by it.

“Yeah, everything is good,” he told reporters. “I grew up in Compton, California. I’ve been through worse.”

Bergquist had broken into the DeRozan residence and made his way upstairs to the play area where at least one of the NBA player’s kids had been playing in, TMZ Sports reported. A commotion broke out, and DeRozan raced upstairs to see what was happening.

It was here where DeRozan came face-to-face with the burglar and chased him out of their home. The intruder tried to return to the gated community after some time to break into the mansion of Jenner, who is living in the same neighborhood as DeRozan.

Security personnel was able to stop him and called the police. Bergquist was charged with one count of felony burglary. Aside from that, a restraining order was issued against him, prohibiting him from getting anywhere close to DeRozan's home and Jenner's homes.

Bergquist is the same man whom unnamed sources claimed broke into one of the homes in Jenner’s neighborhood last month but came out with nothing, TMZ earlier reported. Having left without taking anything, it is believed he broke in to try again.

As for DeRozan, he is preparing for another stint with the Spurs this 2020-21 season. He took up the player option in his current deal and will make $27.7 million this coming NBA season.

The 31-year-old player spent most of his nine-year NBA career with the Toronto Raptors. He was traded by the Raptors in July 2018, along with Jakob Poeltl, in exchange for Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green.

DeRozan would have ended up being an unrestricted free agent had he opted out of his deal with the Spurs. It appears he has saved that possibility for the next NBA offseason.

The Spurs open their regular season on Dec. 23 when they will face the Memphis Grizzlies.
