Iman Shumpert Arrested for Weed Possession at Dallas Airport

Former NBA player Iman Shumpert is facing a drug possession charge after he was caught carrying marijuana through a security checkpoint at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, the agency reports. The incident happened over the weekend as Shumpert, 32, was preparing to board a Delta flight to Los Angeles, where he was planning to visit his daughter, a rep for the ex-athlete says. However, instead of going to L.A., Shumpert was taken to jail after a screener found a baggie containing 6.12 ounces of marijuana in his backpack, according to the Transportation Security Administration. If convicted, Shumpert -- who played for the Cavaliers and Knicks, among other teams -- faces up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine, in accordance with Texas laws. Additionally, Shumpert had in his possession, per TMZ, "a Glock magazine and 14 9mm rounds in his bag'' as he was set to board a Delta flight to Los Angeles.
