Traffic Warrants Stop Ron Artest’s Name Change for Now

Ron Artest’s unpaid traffic tickets won’t allow him to officially become Metta World Peace just yet. Reports the LA Times: “Reporters were told Friday morning at Stanley Mosk Courthouse that Artest, who was petitioning to legally change his name to Metta World Peace, will not be able to do so right away. A court official said, ‘Ron has to clear outstanding traffic warrants’ before a name change can take effect. Before annoucement of the Lakers forward’s outstanding warrants, it was expected that the name change would be made official Friday. His next court date is set for Sept. 16.”

    God Bless Metta World Peace. Maybe he should play in Israel instead of over here. They need the Peace more than us.
