Sacramento Kings power forward Zach Randolph has been arrested on felony charges of drug possession with intent to sell, according to a report from CBS2 in Los Angeles.
Randolph was taken into custody along with another man after police were met by a mob outside of a housing project and called for backup, the report said. Randolph was booked at 4:23 a.m. with bail set at $20,000. CBS2 LA says there were no reports of any serious injuries during the encounter.
TMZ Sports reported that Randolph had a substantial amount of marijuana on him at the time of his arrest.
According to the TMZ report, police were originally responding to reports of loud music and “people smoking.”
“When [the police] got there, they saw a couple of people running from the scene, so they went and apprehended those people. One of those people, we’re told, Zach Randolph.”
