Former NBA star Iman Shumpert was arrested at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport on Saturday, July 30, and charged with felony possession of marijuana.
Shumpert, 32, was arrested on felony drug charges after officers discovered a clear plastic bag containing a “sizeable” amount of marijuana in his backpack.
DFW Airport Police determined the weed weighed 6.12 ounces, according to TMZ Sports.
Shumpert, who is married to R&B singer Teyana Taylor, 31, was handcuffed and transported to a nearby jail “without incident,” according to TMZ Sports.
Marijuana is not legal in Texas for medical or recreational use.
Possession of over one ounce of weed in Texas is interpreted as “intent to distribute” marijuana or trafficking.
Cops also discovered a Glock magazine and fourteen 9mm rounds in Shumpert’s backpack but no gun. The charge is classified as a “State Jail Felony.” If convicted, Shumpert faces up to 2 years in jail and a $10,000 fine.
The former Cavaliers and Knicks guard is currently an NBA free agent.
Shumpert and Taylor were married in 2016. They share two daughters, 6-year-old Iman Shumpert Jr. and Rue Rose, 2.
Shumpert won Season 30 of “Dancing With The Stars.”
