Dante Cunningham Faces Drug Possession Charge

The Bobcats forward’s vehicle was searched during a traffic stop in Philadelphia and authorities found a small amount of marijuana in his car. According to the Charlotte Observer: “Officers smelled marijuana and recovered a suspicious substance after Cunningham consented to a search. That search also turned up a pellet gun in violation of a local ordinance. Cunningham was arraigned and released on bail. The team says its gathering information on the case and declined further comment until the case is resolved.”

    Why did he consent To a search if he had drugs? Civic education..

    If he does not consent to a search, they can just get a warrant.

    Glad he isn’t with Portland anymore. The JailBlazer era was bad enough to deal with

    It doesn’t matter, if they smell marijuana that is probable cause for a search. Minored in Criminal Justice, man EVERYBODY should know the laws. There is a lot of stuff you can not do. For example, if they come to your door for any reason, and a toilet flushes, they have probable cause to search the house. No lie. Crazy, i know.

    He should have hit the icky and the pellet gun in that gap between his teeth. Lots of room there for drugs, guns and carry-on baggage.


    What an idiot!

    Okay, the weed I understand is an illegal substance, but should be legalized, IMO, but the pellet gun? C’mon, is he gonna go squirrel hunting?
