Sacramento Kings forward Zach Randolph arrested on marijuana charge

Randolph, who grew up in Marion, Indiana, has had previous arrests in his youth and early in his career.

CBS2 reports that police confronted a large group of people gathering at the Nickerson Garden Housing Project at roughly 10:00 p.m. and things rapidly got out of control. His charge, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, came from the large quantity of weed that Randolph possessed at the time, per TMZ. According to the Los Angeles Times, police later formed a skirmish line in an attempt to disperse the crowd. 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 vehicle. The other arrest was for gun possession, police said.

Police recovered two guns, drugs, cash, and two vehicles were impounded.

"Randolph is listed at 6'9", 260 on his booking sheet, which also says bail was set at $20,000.

Randolph's agent and lawyer, Raymond Brothers, told ESPN that the charges are false and misleading.

During the last season, Randolph has maintained averages of 14.1 points, 1.7 to mention assistance and 8.2 rebounds per game.

Randolph, 36, is a two-time NBA All-Star who was drafted by the Trail Blazers in 2001.
