Former NBA security guard Iman Shumpert was arrested Saturday after allegedly having a “significant” amount of marijuana in his bag at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, according to TMZ Sports.
Shumpert was reportedly flying from Dallas to Los Angeles on Saturday when he was detained by security.
Shumpert admitted to police that the bag they found was marijuana, which reportedly weighed just over six ounces, and was subsequently arrested and charged with a felony.
The 32-year-old faces up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Shumpert last played in the league during the 2020-21 season, though he played in just two games for the Brooklyn Nets.
The New York Knicks initially fielded Shumpert with the number 17 overall pick in 2011.
He then spent time with the Cleveland Cavaliers where he won a title along with LeBron James, the Sacramento Kings and Houston Rockets before joining the Nets.
Shumpert averaged 7.2 points and 3.3 rebounds per game throughout his career.
He also won “Dancing With The Stars” in 2021.
Iman Shumpert has not officially announced his retirement, but hasn’t seen much NBA action since he starred in the Rockets’ playoff run in 2019.
