Udonis Haslem Pulled Over, Arrested
It’s been a topsy-turvy summer for Udonis Haslem. On the “topsy” side, he’s re-upped with the Heat, and he’ll be contending for a championship this season. On the “turvy” side, his mother passed away, and, as of yesterday he’s been pulled over and found to have weed in his car, as the AP reports:
“Heat forward Udonis Haslem was arrested Sunday for possession of marijuana following a traffic stop in Miami-Dade County.
Haslem, 30, was stopped around 3:05 p.m. going eastbound on the Gratigny Parkway because of speeding, Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Mark Wysocky said. Haslem was also charged with illegal window tint, Wysocky said.
A passenger in Haslem’s 2008 Mercedes, Antwain Fleming, was also charged with possession. Both were being transported to Miami-Dade County Jail for processing. Corrections officials said neither had been added to the county system as of early Sunday evening.
‘During the traffic stop the trooper smelled an odor of marijuana from within the vehicle,’ Wysocky wrote in a press release. ‘After the subsequent search, Mr. Haslem and Mr. Fleming were placed under arrest.’
