A former college basketball star has reportedly been arrested with a stolen AK 47 in the back of his car.

Chane Behanan, who won a national championship with Louisville earlier this decade, was reportedly arrested on Saturday night.

The former Cardinals' standout was reportedly arrested with three other people in Louisville.

WDRB has more details:

An arrest report from Louisville Metro Police says Behanan and three other people were arrested on 7th Street Road.

Police say Behanan was a backseat passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over for a traffic violation. According to police, officers could smell marijuana coming from the vehicle. Authorities say an officer also "observed marijuana residue" on Behanan's lap.

Officials say a stolen Sporter 7.62 ak-47 style rifle was found in the backseat of the car. The weapon was stolen from Troy, Indiana, according to police.

Behanan is reportedly being charged with stolen property and marijuana possession.

The 25-year-old former Louisville star helped lead the Cardinals to a national title in 2013. He last played for the Salt Lake City Stars of the NBA G League.
