LEBANON, Ohio — A judge has found former NBA player Kirk Snyder not competent to stand trial and ordered that he be force-fed.
Warren County Common Pleas Judge Neal Bronson made the ruling Thursday. He says Snyder has rejected all medications and food and has been hospitalized twice.
The 25-year-old Snyder was charged with aggravated burglary and felonious assault following a March break-in at a neighbor's home.
Snyder's attorney filed documents saying Snyder isn't competent to stand trial and is not guilty by reason of insanity.
Snyder has played for the Jazz, the Hornets, the Rockets and the Timberwolves. He played in China last season.
