The Knick forward was arrested last night when the police found a whole bunch of the sticky-icky in his car. The NY Daily News reports, but not before they snitched on Chandler to his granny first: “Knicks forward Wilson Chandler was busted in Queens last night with a joint and five bags of pot, police sources Wednesday. The tattooed-covered rising star was pulled over in his 2010 Mercedes-Benz was on 94th Ave. and 213th St. at 11:30 p.m. for driving with his headlights off. ‘When they approached the vehicle, they smelled…and observed smoke,’ a source said of the arresting officers. They found the pot in the trunk, sources said. Chandler, who had a 22-year-old passenger, was arrested and charged with criminal possession of marijuana. He was given a desk appearance ticket. Word of Chandler’s arrest stunned and angered his grandmother, 76-year-old Olivia Chandler of Benton Harbor, Mich. ‘I don’t know about pot in his car, I ain’t heard nothing from him yet,’ she said. ‘I didn’t raise him to smoke pot.’ Asked about Chandler’s recent state of mind, the grandma said ‘he just had surgery.”‘
