Sacramento Kings’ Zach Randolph Arrested for Weed In Los Angeles; Crowd Destroys 6 Cop Cars Right After
This is not the ideal way you want to start your career off with a new team.
Last month, former Memphis Grizzlies big man Zach Randolph signed a 2-year, $24 million deal to play with the Sacramento Kings, and he’s already gotten himself in trouble, according to TMZ.
“NBA star Zach Randolph was arrested in L.A. on Wednesday night — igniting a crazy disturbance that required cops to call in the cavalry for backup, TMZ Sports has learned.
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.
Another man who was arrested was an ex-con in possession of a gun, law enforcement sources say.
After the arrests, we’re told things got crazy — the crowd became unruly and LAPD had to call for backup.”
The crowd started to become so unruly that 6 cop cars were vandalized— their tires were slashed and windows busted.
Randolph’s bail was set at $20,000.
