Iman Shumpert of the Cleveland Cavaliers was arrested back in August for driving under the influence of marijuana.
According to the police report, Shumpert was pulled over outside of Atlanta on August 10th around 11:37 PM for a lane change violation and because his taillights weren’t on in his rented Audi A3. At the time the officer noticed that Shumpert’s eyes were bloodshot and that he smelled like weed. A field sobriety test was administered and it was determined he was indeed high.
Shumpert told the officer that he was at his “homegirl’s house” and was on his way to pick up his father form the airport. He did admit to smoking weed prior to driving.
The vehicle was searched and a mason jar with marijuana (less than an ounce) was confiscated.
The Cavs have issued the following statement:
“Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert was arrested by Fayette County (Ga.) Police outside Atlanta for suspicion of DUI following an Aug. 10 traffic stop for a lane violation,” the statement read. “The Cavaliers have discussed the situation with Iman and will monitor the progression of the pending case. A court date has not been set at this point, and neither Iman or the team will have any additional comments while the matter progresses through the legal process.”
