ANKARA, Turkey (ABC4 Utah) – Former Jazz center Enes Kanter is creating a worldwide controversy.

 

A Turkish newspaper says an arrest warrant has been issued for Kanter in turkey on terrorism charges.  That for supporting a failed coup against turkey’s president.

 

Just last week Kanter was detained at a Romanian airport when turkey pulled his passport.

 

Kanter is back in United States now but responded to the Turkey arrest story with a tweet saying. “You cannot catch me. Ha ha ha. Don’t waste your energy. I am already going to come to turkey to spit on all your ugly, hate filled faces.”
