Police in Salt Lake County arrested former Utah Jazz center Robert Whaley and found marijuana “between his buttocks,” according to a jail document.
Whaley, 27, had warrants for his arrest for absconding from a probation in Michigan. A police document filed with the Salt Lake County jail says gang detectives stopped a car about 4:30 a.m. Thursday. Whaley was a passenger and was not wearing a seat belt, the document says. Whaley identified himself to police as Kareem Johnson, the document says. Apparently, it didn’t fool detectives.
“They recognized him as being a former Jazz player,” Hutson said. Police discovered Whaley had a warrant for his arrest. “Robert was also found to be in possession of several baggies of marijuana that he was holding between his buttocks,” a police officer wrote. Hutson did not know how much marijuana Whaley had. If it is a small amount for personal use, prosecutors in Utah are unlikely to seek charges because that might delay Whaley’s return to Michigan, Hutson said. Whaley remained in the Salt Lake County jail on Friday morning. The jail’s Web site says he is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Come on, who was this guy trying to fool?? Damn…”several baggies of marijuana” tucked in his booty??? We have got to do better people.
