Kings' Randolph Arrested on Pot Charge

Kings' Randolph Arrested on Pot Charge

In 2010, a friend of Randolph's was arrested in Indianapolis after police found the friend driving in Randolph's SUV with a cooler containing marijuana.

Police on patrol observed a crowd drinking, smoking pot, blasting music and blocking streets at the Nickerson Gardens project in Watts, Preciado said. The officers then tried to disperse the crowd, and the disturbance escalated. Tires were slashed and windows busted, forcing cops to call for backup and form a battle line.

The second individual in custody was identified as a 43-year-old man arrested on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Randolph was booked at 4:23 a.m. Thursday in the Los Angeles County Jail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department inmate records.

He was cited for intent to supply because of the large amount of marijuana found at the address, reports said citing law enforcement. Additionally, police recovered two guns, impounded two vehicles and seized narcotics.

Raymond Brothers, who serves as Randolph's attorney and agent, told ESPN the charges are false and misleading.

Randolph, 36, is a two-time NBA All-Star who was drafted by the Trail Blazers in 2001. Randolph also played for the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Clippers.

Randolph averaged 14.1 points and 8.2 rebounds for the Grizzlies last season before signing with the Kings in July on a two-year, $US24 million deal.
