Former NBA Player Sebastian Telfair Arrested on Gun Possession
Sebastian Telfair must have some serious enemies or be a serious gun enthusiast. The former high school to league NBA ‘star’ was popped in Brooklyn this weekend, for gun and drug possession. He was caught while parked illegally on a Brooklyn street. Police pulled him over after he “suspiciously” drove off. Tey stopped him and “smelled weed”. That’s when they searched and found a GTA started kit full of guns.
According to NBC New York, this is the second time Telfair has been caught with guns and ammo. Back in 2008, he pleaded guilty to gun possession and was sentenced to three years probation.
Telfair, 32, and another man, Jami Thomas, 18, were found with three loaded firearms, a semi-automatic rifle, ammunition and a bullet-resistant vest, police said. Two bags of marijuana and a burning marijuana cigarette were also allegedly found in the 2017 Ford F-150 pickup with Florida plates.
They were parked illegally on the median on Atlantic Avenue near Classon Street, said police.
As officers approached, they started to drive off, according to the source. Police who pulled them over smelled marijuana and saw a lit “blunt” on the dashboard, police said. […]
Telfair and a friend were arrested in 2007 on a gun charge after a traffic stop. He was stopped for speeding on the Bronx River Parkway, then found to be driving with a suspended license. Police found a .45 caliber handgun under the passenger seat. Both Telfair and his friend said they didn’t know how the gun got there.
Telfair pleaded guilty in 2008 to criminal possession of a weapon and was sentenced to three years of probation. The NBA suspended him for three games.
Here’s a look at what they found.
Sheesh!!! Of course twitter had jokes. But, a second gun charge won’t be a laughing matter. Especially in NYC. It might be a wrap for Bassy.
