Gilbert Arenas was one of the premier players in the NBA, but after a few stints with teams like the Magic and the Wizards, he has since been left off of NBA rosters. Instead, he has found a home in China, as a member of the Shanghai Sharks.
At 2:30 AM, Arenas was pulled over in Los Angeles in a Ford pick up truck. Initially he was going to solely face a speed ticket, as he was zooming around at a speed over 80mph, but the police quickly discovered another reason to cite the former NBA star. In fact, the bed of Arenas’s car was loaded with 20 boxes of illegal fireworks.
I don’t know about you, but if I was transporting something illegal, I would do my best to no attract police attention i.e. use blinkers, slow down at yell lights, and drive at the speed limit. He was charged with speeding without a license and possession of illegal fireworks.
Most intriguing part, the bomb squad had to be called in to safely remove the contraband. As if we needed another example of the stupidity of professional athletes.
