Sacramento Kings big man Zach Randolph was reportedly arrested in Los Angeles on Wednesday for possession of marijuana.
Randolph left the jail cell this morning after posting bail.
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.
After spending the last eight years with the Memphis Grizzlies, Randolph signed a two-year, $24 million deal to join the Kings this summer.
He holds career averages of 16.8 points and 9.3 rebounds.
