Former Michigan State forward Zach Randolph was arrested on Wednesday night in Los Angeles on suspicion of possession of marijuana for sale, according to multiple reports.
Randolph’s agent and lawyer, Raymond Brothers, told ESPN that the charges are false and misleading.
ESPN reports that Los Angeles Police Department officers came across a large group of people playing loud music and smoking marijuana during a routine patrol in a housing project in the Watts neighborhood on Wednesday night.
When officers tried to disperse the crowd, a disturbance began that led to five LAPD vehicles and one sheriff’s vehicle being damaged.
Randolph and one other man were arrested during the incident. Randolph was released on bond on Thursday morning.
Randolph signed a two-year contract with the Sacramento Kings in July, ending an eight-year run with the Memphis Grizzlies. The 16-year veteran averaged 14.1 points and 8.2 rebounds per game last season.
