FORMER NBA PLAYER GLEN “BIG BABY” DAVIS ARRESTED ON DRUG CHARGES

Aberdeen, Maryland

 

Former NBA player Glen Davis has come a long way from his glory days in the league. The former Boston Celtic and LA Clippers player was arrested in a Maryland Hotel last month and charged with drug possession and distribution. Davis was arrested on Feb 7th at the Hampton Inn in Aberdeen. ESPN (@espn) reported, that it was the smell of marijuana that got Davis in trouble. When the owner of the hotel smelled the aroma of something good in the air, his investigation led him to Davis’ room. The owner called the cops. When officers ran up in the room they found Davis, about a quarter pound of weed, and around $92,000 in cash. Davis was arrested and later charged with seven (7) counts of drug possession and distribution. What’s strange to me is the amount of weed recovered in relation to the amount of money recovered. Doesn’t that seem a little strange to you? 125 grams of weed is not that much herb. There are probably people who smoke that much in a few days. Why did he have so much money in the room when he was dealing with an amount of weed that small? Maybe he sold some before 5-0 ran up in the spot? But why have that type of money up in the hotel with you if that was the case? I don’t know…..maybe he was waiting on a customer to come through and buy the last quarter pound. Maybe he was up in the hotel slangin’ nicks and dimes. Either way, Big Baby got himself caught up in some mess. I still find it amazing that people who were making millions of dollars just a few short years earlier turn to illegal means of obtaining money so quickly after they leave the league. Why not invest in stocks or sell stuff on Ebay or something? Anything has to be better than having to spend MORE MONEY to fight a dummy case and have to pay to bail yourself out of jail because of a case you caught while trying to make some money. That seems like hustling backwards to me. Remember that Biggie Smalls lyric “Time to contemplate, damn, where did I fail? All the money I stacked, was all the money for bail.”
