Latrell Sprewell Was Arrested on New Year’s Eve for Blasting Loud Music

Former NBA player, the great Latrell Sprewell, was booked for irritating his neighbors in Milwaukee with loud music. Spree apparently turned the stereo system way up in the afternoon on New Year’s Eve. Per the Journal Sentinel: “Milwaukee native and former NBA star Latrell Sprewell was arrested for disorderly conduct Monday afternoon after police received repeated complaints about loud music coming from a house on E. Pleasant St. on Milwaukee’s east side, according to jail records. Police would not release details of the incident other than to report that police had received two complaints within one hour Monday afternoon and had received several complaints of loud music from the residence in recent months. Sprewell, 42 and a graduate of Washington High School, was booked into the jail about 4:15 p.m.”

    It wasn’t so much the noise level that pissed his neighbors off. He was listening to the latest Taylor Swift album over and over again.

    One of the best two-way swingmen in the game in the late nineties, pposse. Definitely great – just not as great as he thought, and not for too long.

    The only surprising thing about this article – that it took this long for Spree to be arrested

    from what i remember he was a good slasher, but i thought his fundamentals were horrid ie: his shooting form. I think he was an above average defender
