NBA's Randolph arrested on pot charge at LA housing project

Zach Randolph

Unruly crowd prompts large police response; NBA star arrested for pot

Police recovered two guns, impounded two vehicles and seized narcotics, authorities said. His next court date is scheduled for August 31, according to the sheriff's department's online records.

The Kings said they are aware of the situation but had no further comment. The officers then tried to disperse the crowd, and the disturbance escalated. After the arrests, we're told things got insane - the crowd became unruly and LAPD had to call for backup.

Five Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) patrol cars were vandalised, along with one Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department (LASD) vehicle, according to the report, while no one was injured in the incident.

Randolph and another man Stanley Walton were arrested during an investigation on Wednesday night, which triggered a riot in Watts, an African-American community area in downtown LA.

He established himself as a fan favorite over the past eight seasons in Memphis, a city that embraced him for his rugged playing style and for overcoming a rough upbringing.

It was a huge blow not only on the team, who is banking on his leadership to keep the young Kings in check, but also on the 16-year veteran who have worked hard in transforming his previously-troubled image into that of a good soldier for the entirety of his stint with the Memphis Grizzlies.

The 36-year-old Randolph ranks first in Grizzlies' franchise history in rebounds (5,612) and is second behind Mike Conley in points (9,261). His 20 double-doubles were the most by any bench player in the league.
