*Cleveland Cavaliers star Iman Shumpert was arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana and possessing the substance following a traffic stop in August, reports TMZ Sports.
The police report states Shumpert was driving a rented Audi A3 on Aug. 10 at around 11:37 p.m. outside of Atlanta when he was pulled over for a lane change violation and because his taillights weren’t on.
According to the report, the officer said Shumpert reeked of weed during the stop and his eyes were bloodshot. Shumpert informed the officer he had just come from his “homegirl’s house” and was going to pick up his father from the airport.
The cop administered a field sobriety test and determined Shumpert was high. The NBA star also admitted he had smoked weed before leaving his friend’s house.
Cops searched the car and found a mason jar with marijuana. He refused their request for a blood test, claiming, “people would recognize him and it would cause a scene.”
Shumpert was handcuffed and arrested for DUI marijuana and possession of weed (less than an ounce). He was also cited for failure to maintain his lane.
The Cavs issued a statement saying they have discussed the situation with Iman and “will monitor the progression of the pending case. …A court date has not been set at this point, and neither Iman or the team will have any additional comments while the matter progresses through the legal process.”
