Kings' Zach Randolph Arrested On Felony Weed Charge

Recently signed Sacramento Kings power forward Zach Randolph was arrested Wednesday night by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department on a felony charge of marijuana possession with intent to sell. KCRA-TV Los Angeles reported that Randolph was one of three men who initially fled the area, and that he was arrested after being brought out of a nearby housing unit.

Randolph was arrested at around 11 pm local time and booked 5 hours later with bail set at $20,000. Once there, they reportedly found a large group of people smoking, playing music, and blocking the street.

When officers tried to disperse the crowd, and the disturbance escalated. In 2003, as Portland was trying to shed the Jail Blazer era, he was charged for driving under the influence following a police stop when officers smelled marijuana in his auto. Five police cars were damaged during the melee. Randolph has spent time with the Grizzlies, Clippers, Knicks and Trail Blazers in his 16-year career. Randolph was never charged in the incident.

Randolph just signed a two-year contract with the Kings for $44 million. The arrest resulted in a two-game suspension. While playing for the Portland Trailblazers in 2003, he was arrested when a police officer smelled marijuana emanating from his vehicle.

Randolph has been in the National Basketball Association for 16 years and is a two-time All Star. He was the 19th overall pick.

But Randolph has gotten in trouble for drug-related offenses before.
