Former prep basketball phenom and NBA guard Sebastian Telfair has been arrested on gun possession charges in New York City. The Brooklyn native and another man were caught with guns and weed in an illegally parked car.
Reports NBC New York:
Telfair, 32, and another man, Jami Thomas, 18, were found with three loaded firearms, a semi-automatic rifle, ammunition and a bullet-resistant vest, police said. Two bags of marijuana and a burning marijuana cigarette were also allegedly found in the 2017 Ford F-150 pickup with Florida plates.
They were parked illegally on the median on Atlantic Avenue near Classon Street, said police.
As officers approached, they started to drive off, according to the source. Police who pulled them over smelled marijuana and saw a lit “blunt” on the dashboard, police said.
You really can’t make this stuff up.
Telfair was to be arraigned tonight (June 11) in Brooklyn.
Don’t expect that NBA comeback to go down anytime soon.
