Cleveland Cavaliers guard Delonte West was arrested Thursday night on weapons charges for carrying three loaded guns. The NBA star was pulled over in Princes Georges County near Washington, D.C. after cutting off a police officer on while driving a three-wheeled motorcycle.
Authorities said Delonte West informed the officer he was carrying a loaded gun when he was stopped. The officer called for backup and then searched the NBA player, finding he was also carrying two additional guns. West reportedly had a handgun strapped to his leg and a shotgun in a guitar case on his back.
Delonte West was arrested and charged with speeding and multiple counts of weapon possession, according to court records. He was later released on his own recognizance. West is scheduled to appear in court on Nov 20.
The real question here is why in the hell was West speeding down a freeway carrying three loaded weapons on a three-wheeled motorcycle? Is he auditioning for a remake of Mad Max or something? And a shotgun hidden in a guitar case? How seriously cheesy is that?
