You might think that an NBA player in the middle of a three-year, $10 million contract shouldn't be riding around Georgia with enough illegal drugs to warrant felony drug charges. And you'd be right. So... why doesn't Mike Scott, forward for the Atlanta Hawks, know that?
Scott was arrested yesterday morning as a passenger of a Chevy Tahoe that failed to yield to officers. In the car: A 20-year-old driver, over an ounce of weed and roughly 10.9 grams of MDMA, also known as Molly.
Banks County Sheriff's Sgt. Carissa McFaddin said deputies attempted to stop the vehicle after noticing the driver following too close to other vehicles.
"As deputies attempted to make the traffic stop, the driver sped up to 98 mph and failed to stop," McFaddin said. "The driver continued for two miles and finally stopped near mile marker 156."
McFaddin said deputies made contact with the driver, 20-year-old Antonn Imhotep Scott of Acworth, and his passenger, James Michael Scott.
"The occupants advised that they did have marijuana in the vehicle," McFaddin said. "Deputies located over an ounce of Marijuana in the vehicle along with approximately 10.9 grams of MDMA, known as 'Molly'." ...
James Michael Scott was charged with felony possession of marijuana and possession of Schedule I drug.
Wow. So Scott, a millionaire who plays for a very good basketball team, decided to spend part of his summer riding dirty with an idiot who doesn't know how to drive. Good use of time.
The web's got jokes, though:
Yo, Mike Scott had 28 and 10 last night
Yeah, in grams
