Lebron James' former Cavaliers teammate Iman Shumpert may face up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Shumpert, a former NBA champion, was detained at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on Saturday. The former Cavaliers player carried a substantial amount of marijuana in his backpack.
The prohibited substance in Shumpert's luggage measured 6.12 ounces, according to TMZ Sports. A mobile test revealed that the former Georgia Tech athlete had tested positive for marijuana. The airport officials discovered a green leafy vegetable in his suitcase, which the 32-year-old confessed was cannabis.
He was scheduled to fly to Los Angeles to see his daughter. He would, however, be apprehended and arrested soon for marijuana possession. According to the report, the 6′′5′ guard was handcuffed and escorted to the prison.
The athlete's problems would worsen, with cops allegedly discovering a Glock magazine and 14 9mm bullets in his suitcase.
Shumpert faces up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted. Despite the absence of a firearm, a Glock magazine has made matters worse for the former LeBron James teammate.
On another note, Shumpert was also charged with driving under the influence of marijuana in 2016. As a result, this was not the first time the Illinois native had found himself on the wrong side of the law.
