In another instance where the NBA lockout’s presence is felt, we have NBA star Marcus Camby being arrested for marijuana possession.  The Trail Blazers center  was arrested by police in Pearland Texas Monday and charged with marijuana possession, according to a report on

The report describes the arrest:

Police officials say officers pulled over Camby’s black Porsche around midnight on when he was spotted driving north on Cullen Boulevard with a sun screen device blocking the front window.

Officers then questioned Camby and a passenger, later identified as Kendal Lance Johnson, 25. Officers say they noticed the smell of marijuana. Camby gave permission for the car to be searched and police said they discovered what appeared to be several marijuana cigarettes and a baggie with a small amount of the same substance hidden under the front seat.  Both suspects denied ownership of the marijuana.

Both were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana in a drug-free zone, a class A misdemeanor offense.  Both suspects were released shortly after posting $2,000 bond.  My favorite portion of this arrest has to be that both denied that the marijuana was their own.  You would think that Kendal would jump on the grenade and Camby could pay him accordingly.
