Report: Kendrick Perkins Arrested

UPDATE: It was originally reported that Jackson was also arrested, but those reports were false.

by Ryne Nelson

Kendrick Perkins was arrested on charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct early this morning, according to a Beaumont TV station.

KFDM reports Perkins was taken to Jefferson County Correctional Facility in Perkins’ hometown of Beaumont, TX at 4:17 a.m. and released minutes later.

KFDM has confirmed that NBA star Kendrick Perkins was arrested in Beaumont early Saturday morning. He was booked into the Jefferson County jail around 4:00a.m. on charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct. The charges are a class C misdemeanor. Per Texas penal code 12.23, an individual guilty of a class C misdemeanor shall be punished by a fine not to exceed $500. Perkins posted bond of $150 shortly after being booked and were released.

Perk was in town to host a celebrity game and hold a camp for area kids. The game, which was scheduled for Friday, was allegedly cancelled after Perkins had an incident in Stephen Jackson‘s Port Arthur home late Thursday.

The arrest comes after Perkins reportedly had an accident at Stephen Jackson’s home in Port Arthur late Thursday night. KFDM confirmed a 27 year old male was taken from Jackson’s home by ambulance to the Medical Center of Southeast Texas. The subject was treated for minor injuries and released.

The NBA can’t further discipline him because of the lockout.

  • Nigel

    The article doesn’t say anything about Jack’s arrest.

  • Dirkish

    I bet Perk is an angry drunk.

    “The NBA can’t discipline them further because of the lockout.”

  • slamfan4life

  • robb

    Captain Jack and Captain Morgan. Scary combo.

  • Chukaz

    Jackson probably shot perkins by mistake. when an ambulance takes you out of stephen jackson’s house, he shot you. no ifs ands or buts about it

  • angus

  • Conoro

    “… NBA star Kendrick Perkins…” What?!?!

    The scowl on Perk’s mugshot must be priceless! Pretty sure, he got himself a technical while being arrested for being ‘too demonstrative.’

    Its pretty sad that NBA players could not conduct themselve better, also was the camp canceled for the kids. It really doesn’t say, if it was, they probably let them some kids and impacted their future, by saying they would rather be drunk than work with kids.

    ^Negro please. Stop talking like those guys are the town drunk. They got wasted one night and acted a donkey, it happens to everybody.

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    ^It don’t happen to me and my mentor Skip Bayless, we don’t drink.

  • doyouwantmore

    @JTaylor – No, it doesn’t happen to everybody. It happens to grown men who don’t know how to act. I’m so sick of excuses. Maybe it shouldn’t happen to anybody.

    What did Cap Jack get arrested for? And was it an incident or an accident that happened to Perkins (or both?). @JTaylor- I agree it happens to everyone, but these dudes are unemployed right now, can’t they get gone on any night other than the one before they are HOSTING a bball camp for kids?

    I heard Rajon rondo and Perk were together in rondos Bentley. Then some hood guys came up and Perk knocked one of them out and the strangers begin to lose. Not only Perk got arrested but also some other guy.

  • Oh Nose

    Kendrick Perkins = Genie from Aladdin

  • jonny

    @ JTaylor – “acted a donkey”. Come on man, grow up. Honestly. Think, I mean really spend some time in thought. Stop it. We’re not going to ever progress as a human race if we CONTINUE to blame everyone else and MAKE EXCUSES. Plus, referring to such actions as “acting a donkey” lets me further know just how far we have yet to go. I mean, their actions (and yours?) are all coming from GROWN MEN. ADULTS. Come on man.

    First of all, people forget that if not for the lockout these guys would be off on summer holidays. I’m a teacher and I get good and liquored up from time to time during the summer. Being unemployed for a month and a half wouldn’t be that big of a deal it they had a job to go back too.
    As a Thunder fan I sure hope Perk doesn’t go eddy curry on us and get fat(ter) during the lockout

  • Luiyo

    Kendrick Perkins —-> NBA STAR???? So DJ Mbenga is a star too? cause he got a ring….

  • BostonBaller

    I’m off in the Summers also and that doesn’t happen to me..it doesn’t happen to everyone and no one should make excuses for what happened nor should we condemn him for it. It is a shame that the camp didn’t go forward, I’d like to have seen it continue and he make an appearance and apologize and explain how he made a mistake…(a teaching moment)

  • Letthetruthbetold

    That is thuggish behavior.

  • kbj

    I could see him jus scowling right now

  • ErnieD

    Disappointed in Perk. Thought he knew better than that. It’s a good chance he does end up overweight after the lockout. When he was drafted, he was bloated and out of shape. Not good for someone coming back from a torn ACL. He would want to be as fit and light as possible, so as not to put added strain on his legs. He has had foot issues and shoulder problems too. he’s got his contract for nearly 50 Million, so he’s all set. Maybe he won’t care.
