Zach Randolph, one of the newest members of the Sacramento Kings, was arrested in Los Angeles on Wednesday night.
The former Memphis Grizzlies star and two-time NBA All-Star was arrested for felony possession of marijuana with intent to sell after police responded to a loud disturbance in the street.
After men in the gathering were seen allegedly reaching towards their waistbands and then running, the officers made arrests, including Randolph.
He has been charged due to the large amount of marijuana on the scene. More, from TMZ:
LAPD officers were called to the Nickerson Gardens area in L.A. around 10 PM — and when they arrived, cops found a large crowd of people smoking, playing loud music and blocking the roadway.
Law enforcement sources tell us 3 people were seen grabbing their waistbands and running — so cops went after them.
Three people were detained — including Randolph, who was eventually arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to sell, A FELONY. We’re told the “intent to sell” part was due to the large amount of weed found.
Randolph, who recently signed a two-year, $24 million deal with the Kings, was held on $20,000 bail. He was arrested shortly after 11:00 p.m., and was booked at 4:23 a.m. this morning.
