LA Lakers Forward Popped For Being Drunk And Assaulting A Cashier At An IHOP In New Orleans

- By Bossip Staff

SMH…when will these guys ever learn???

Los Angeles Lakers forward Derrick Caracter was arrested for drunkenness and allegedly shoving a cashier after being refused service at a pancake restaurant in New Orleans, police said on Monday. Police said the 22-year-old reserve forward was “obviously drunk, unruly and started harassing the cashier” when he was refused service at the restaurant early on Sunday.

“One officer was called to the restaurant, and attempted to diffuse the situation. But Caracter was uncooperative, so that officer called in back-up,” the New Orleans Police Department said in a statement. “Caracter continued to be belligerent with police and was subsequently arrested.”

Caracter was booked into jail on charges of battery, public drunkenness and resisting arrest, according to police, who also said they are trying to obtain a copy of the video surveillance recorded by a camera at the International House of Pancakes.

Caracter, who averaged two points and one rebound per game during the regular season, was released by police but did not play in his team’s playoff loss to the New Orleans Hornets later on Sunday.

Man…and the Lakers declined to comment on this dude’s dumba$$ behavior as well…
