Delonte West’s Mounting Legal Troubles

Delonte’s remarkable weapons cache may end up landing him in the clink: “West has been indicted on two counts of carrying a dangerous weapon, two counts of carrying a handgun, two counts of transporting a handgun, one count of reckless driving and one count of negligent driving. With the charges, there were two new details about what West had on his person when arrested. West was carrying a total of 112 shotgun shells and a 8.5-inch Bowie style knife. If convicted, West could face up to three years for each of the six gun charges and a $2,500 fine per offense.”

    Where was he going?

  • nastierthanu

    Oh yeah 1st

  • somedude

    Yeahhh… at some point mental problems stop being a valid excuse. If it is due to his mental health, he should probably be in a psychiatric ward, like a non-NBA player would be if they were found carrying that.

    just because you read three and 6 it doesn’t automaticly ad up to 9… this isn’t EXCEL and that ain’t a formula. I think they’ll let him walk on probabation for 10 years and if he get’s caught well it’s jailcell for that guy

    he was proly on the way to shoot his wife’s lover, or the wifey… they did have a domestic violence incident a few days after

    People without criminal records rarely get the maximum sentence.
    Plus, I would wager that when West pleads out to one or two of those felonies, he’ll get a minor sentence that probably won’t require jail time.

    With the domestic issues coming to light it does make you wonder where the fu(k he was off to. I doubt he’ll get put away though.

    Good. I have a feeling he was not going hunting or defending his home from burglars. I hope he gets some (short) jail time, because that’s the punishment that fits the crime. If he West actually thinks it’s okay to take weapons out on the street where my kids play, then he’s an idiot and deserves what he gets.

    With Lil Wayne and Buress of to 1 and 2 year jail stints, i think we can expect the same for West.

    The domestic issues, at least the ones posted on this site, appeared quite bogus. But, that’s just speculation.

    See, this is all so interesting to me when the American constitution allows the right to bear arms, but then there are levels of law reform that restrict it. Understand where I’m coming from though, I don’t support guns rights at all. I’m just curious as to what the American laws are, being from Australia we aren’t even allowed to wear shoulder pads on a sports field, so you can imagine how LITTLE room there is for a gun on the streets.

    A lot of players take this for granted. What can possibly make you that mad and/or paranoid when you are in his position?

  • Hoodsnake

    Say it was planted. You were on yur way to practice with your band.

  • hmmmm

    theres a point where you stop using ur mental issues as an excuse and u get ur ass in a hospital where u belong.

  • skywalker

    i always thought he was pretty crazy looking

  • nastierthanu

    112 shells and 2 guns and a knife. He could be headed on killing spree. This will play out terribly if he kills someone in the upcoming years. We wondered how that asain cat that shot up tech got gatz with his mounting mental issues. Here’s a guy with admitted bouts with depression and he’s caught out there like that. How soon we all forget the d.c. Snipers. Get this cat off the streets I don care if he’s nasty he doesn’t belong on the outside. Crazy people do crazy things.
