by August 21, 2018

Kenneth Faried was arrested and charged with the unlawful possession of more than two ounces of marijuana on Sunday.

Faried, 28, was stopped at a highway sobriety checkpoint in upstate New York, and later released on $500 bail.

The Brooklyn Nets, who acquired Faried in a salary dump with the Denver Nuggets this summer, say they’re in the “process of gathering more information at this time.”

Per TMZ:

A rep for the Southampton Town Police Dept. tells us the officer at the scene noticed a “strong odor of marjuana was emanating from the inside of the vehicle.”

Cops say Faried got the harsher charge because he was in possession of more than 2 ounces.

The Nets released a statement to TMZ Sports, saying, “We are aware of the situation involving Kenneth Faried and are in the process of gathering more information at this time.”
