Michael Beasley Cited For Marijuana Possession and Speeding

Some unfortunate news out of Minnesota, as KARE 11 is reporting TWolves forward Michael Beasley was cited for marijuana possession and speeding last week: “Minnetonka Police say Minnesota Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley was cited for marijuana possession and speeding in Minnetonka last week. Beasley was pulled over on June 26 for speeding around 3 a.m. on Interstate 394 and Carlson Parkway. He was clocked at 84 mph in a 65 mph zone. Police also found 16.2 grams of marijuana in Beasley’s vehicle. Both offenses are petty misdemeanors which will result in fines.”

    looks like he found his lockout job… a Drug Dealer!

  • Riggs

    sometimes i wonder if these dudes don’t have common sense, or at least a true friend who would smack them upside the head.

  • eugene

    damn 16.2 grams.must have just picked up lol.

  • deejay

    Why these ballers always riding dirty. Just smoke at the crib fellas. Make your “hook-up” deliver to one of your bff’s and have him/her bring it to you. these MF’ers ain’t learn from the pot-smoking JailBlazers of the late 90′s?

  • Sean B

    16.2 g’s??? Kid said he smokes good no bags or quarters for him.

  • ran

    I hope these guys get the lowest pay possible. 99 percent of these guys don’t appreciate what they have, Some of these guys need to be humbled.

  • Jer dawg

    SMH. Michael michael Michael!!
    Smoke that on your own time and respect the speed limit!

    He is a big man, needs big joints lol

  • http://slamonline.com Eldon Khorshidi

    Oh boy…

  • JL

    that guy just looks like he smokes alot. come on man just stay clean and be the best player you can. then afterwards when you’re done playing you can smoke all the joints you want. doubt anyone will really want to trade for this dude, which the wolves will try to do if Derrick Williams works out.

  • http://aol.com Run”N’Gun219

    Just over a half ounce of bud… Thats nothing As long as its under 28 grams he will just get a ticket. Hey mike try not going 20 miles over the speed limit if you have chronic on ya.. I swear to go he is this generations Lamr Odom. Only thing he needs to do know is have a press conference and start crying saying he cant stop…lol

  • bull22

    here is another reason why the players are fighting the owners also… they want to make sure they have plenty of drug money…..

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    bullSH*T22, shut your corny a** up. How many players have been caught with weed the past year? Maybe 3-5 if you’re lucky, what about the other 300+ that mind their business and haven’t committed a crime? People like you just love to blow up any minor infraction an NBA player commits and use it against the entire L. NFL and MLB players have committed way more serious crimes the past few years yet no one hates them the way they hate NBA players. Hmmmm….

    This isn’t surprising and doesn’t really matter. I am just waiting for the steroid use to be exposed.

  • bnets

    must be his friends weed

  • D.Stokes

    i thought he didnt smoke weed no more tho.

  • bike

    Mike–blame it on the lockout. Tell everyone that without the team-appointed shrink you are a loose cannon.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Nick the Quick

    Anyone remember his Tweeter pic a few years ago that unintentionally revealed some paraphernalia on his bathroom dresser? And how he swore it was not what it appeared to be?

  • seriousblack

    I agree that he should have kept it in the crib. Just silly. At least he’s not a serial r#pist like Roethlisberger.

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    Go figure, eh?

  • Will Lee

    of course that belongs to his friends, not his.

  • alex80

    I don’t get it….. what’s so wrong about weed, ignorance it is what it is.

    Dude just smoke a doobie, big f”#$ing deal. Legalize it, Don’t criticize it!!!!

  • http://dsjfklf.com Jukai

    LOL BIKE!!!!

  • doyouwantmore

    I just saw an episode of that lady cop show where they put a young brother in jail for having a trace of weed on some scissors in his house. The young dude had his future jeopardized for his crime. The same cops were called right after to a call about a drunk wrecking a convenience store. The drunk lady scared the store owner, threatened him, fell down and knocked stuff over, hit her head on a curb, walked into traffic, pulled down her pants on the sidewalk and pi&&ed everywhere, and…the cops let her go. — They don’t serve and protect anymore. They just process legalities. A legalistic society don’t understand justice at all.

    Marijuana use is very high in every sport/profession in the United States of America.

  • Hooch

    Nice one Fat Lever,

    love it…

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/officerbarbrady what

    If you are riding dirty you gotta at least be smart enough to do the speed limit.


    As much as I like Beasley and think marijuana should be legal I just CANNOT defend this sort of stupidity. As much as weed really isn’t a big deal, a professional athlete still shouldn’t be smoking it. Some team is going to steal him again now. It wouldn’t put me off dealing for him at all but DAMN he needs to get some better friends.

  • T-Money

    Mike Beasley is clearly not very intelligent. Why are you speeding at 3 am? Why do you not havpe a weed carrier with you (i.e. Someone that will take the charge – Melo had a good one) ? why can’t you just smoke it in your house and THEN go out?

  • snasty10

    20 0ver the speed limit with a half O equals no common sense, come on beasely at least go the speed limit lol

  • apache

    damn 16 grams dudes really puffin

  • Brahsef

    It’s the off season. 3/4 of the NBA is chiefin up right now. Beasley just ain’t the smartest and is whippin with a half o

    It’s hilarious that his Boss can’t say ish to him about it because of the lockout.

  • http://dsjfklf.com Jukai

    Great section, my comments not needed here

  • http://www.facebook.com/joe.l.brewer3 BlackPhantom

    Boy it makes you look pretty dumb to be an athlete and smoke.

  • andy

    lol at being in Minnetonka!!! I was just watching purple rain yesterday haha
    this wouldnt happen in Miami on a boat

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Not in my opinion BlackPhanties. Sorry still love that one. To me it looks pretty dumb that we have the most skilled athletes in the world smoking, yet still tell everyone it will make you a loser. He was an idiot only because of speeding and transporting something illegal. Not because he smokes.

  • http://twitter.com/BeezKneezy LA Huey

    ^You forgot, driving under the influence but I agree with you otherwise.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Moose

    Is anyone surprised?

  • http://www.facebook.com/joe.l.brewer3 BlackPhantom

    It’s idiotic to smoke while being an ATHLETE because I’m sure it’s unhealthy for cardiovascular endurance. Don’t get me wrong, I think marijuana should be decriminalized, but I think it’s dumb to smoke anything (unless it’s a cigar for celebration or something)while not being retired.

  • http://bedotwater.bandcamp.com BE.water

    Bro. Smoking weed while I play basketball actually makes me play better and I’m way more calm on court. I played college football while being a smoker, and I cant say it hindered mine or any of my teammates ability to perform.

    and 16.2 isnt squat.

  • Bryan

    Listen to all of you making excuses for this bum. What a sad demographic of apologists for these delusional athletes we have here…

  • Bryan

    Yeah….everyone plays better high. We got some real intelligent people on here.

  • http://bugmarley.com Bug Marley

    Be like Mitch Hedberg Mike. He loves his FedEx guy cause he’s a drug dealer and he doesn’t even know it.

  • snasty10

    i wouldnt say performing athletics while high is a good idea personally, some ppl can do it, but smoking after a long day of training is an awesome way to relax and hardly affects the cardiovascular. It also depends on how much you are smoking. Ive been fighting for ten years, smoking for 8, and there hasnt been a fall off in my performance since i started. Its better then drinking, no hangover

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    @ran – You couldn’t name 19% of the league, let alone have intimate knowledge of of the appreciation of wealth of 99% of them.

  • http://twitter.com/BeezKneezy LA Huey

    We got a lot of ignorant prudes here.

  • http://itsahardwoodlife.blogspot.com omphalos

    Stupid decision, with Derrick Williams on the team, Beasley is outta there. If he had kept his nose clean he could have been the face of the franchise, and quite possibly an All-Star, after the exodus of All-Star players to the East. But it’s time to admit he’s beyond redemption and is going to be another Al Harrington.

  • http://dsjfklf.com Jukai

    Smoking actually helped my performance, I can dunk now. Couldn’t do it before I smoked weed!!!

  • http://bedotwater.bandcamp.com BE.water

    Lol, how you gonna say I’m stupid when I actually DO play better when I’m high? I dont know what it is, maybe the fact that it calms me down, thus slowing the game down.

    Now, Mike is an idiot for driving that fast with Weed in the whip, but not for smoking. I’m not giving him a pass on the ticket, but for smoking? Its not that big of a deal – unless you believe those stupid ass weed commercials where they’re so high they speed out of a drive through and crash into a random little girl on a bike. That’s misinformation.

  • SwaaG_SeaN

    I can see why he smokes, he plays for a wack ass team you need not someting to remind you that your career sucks and that you’re a bum

  • http://www.slamonline.com unf*ckwitable

    @nbk, marijuana use is very high everywhere.

  • http://dsjfklf.com Jukai

    BE.water: Maybe because you’re high out of your mind and you only think your playing better? Haha!
    Driving high and smoking high are pretty much the same thing, it differs from person to person on tolerance.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Almost everywhere. But I am aware.

  • Zabba

    I have no problem with an NBA player smoking up during the offseason. But speeding? And holding while speeding? You deserve to get caught, dumbass.

  • http://SLAM FLIGHT 9

    David KHan is right!!!! both are dumbass!

  • Arch

    20+ over the limit?? He Need 2 ‘Be-Eeezy’


    SMH, Beasely can’t even be a responsible weed user. Speed and weed just don’t mix!

    I don’t know about that verse Philo, but in moderation of course the good Lord does not care if one partakes. He most likely expected humans to need something to relieve the stress of this earth we dwell in. Sorry went a lil Philo myself there. Juk’s aren’t you Asian? We all know asian doods can’t hold their smoke. You probably look like a lunatic trying to play ball high. To each his own.

  • Herbert

    I knew he smoked that since day 1.
    you look at his eyes. that type of out focus sight tells it all.

  • OneStep

    See all that talent you have Mr. Beasley? Well right now you’re pissing it up a wall. It’ll be gone soon if you don’t quit.
