Looks like former NBA star Gilbert Arenas will be watching the Fourth of July fireworks from a jail cell. Arenas was arrested early this morning for having a loads of illegal fireworks.
Police officers pulled over Gilbert at around 2:30 in the morning. Arenas was said to have been hitting speeds upwards of 80 MPH in his Ford pickup truck. When cops approached the vehicle, they saw the fireworks sitting in the cab and bed of the truck in plain sight. Arenas was promptly arrested and charged with possession of illegal fireworks. He was also cited for his excessive speeding and allegedly driving with no license. Although we don’t know the exact amount of fireworks were in the pickup, we do know that it was enough fireworks for the bomb squad to be called in.
This isn’t the first time Arenas has been in trouble with the law. Gilbert Arenas was famously arrested in 2010 for brandishing a loaded gun in the locker room of the Washington Wizards.
