Kings' Zach Randolph Reportedly Arrested For Marijuana Possession

NBA player Zach Randolph arrested on pot charge in Watts

Three people, including Randolph, were arrested.

According to TMZ, LAPD were called to the Nickerson Gardens area around 10pm last night and found a large group of people smoking, playing loud music and blocking the road.

Randolph, who signed with the Sacramento Kings earlier this summer, was one of three people detained by Los Angeles police on Wednesday. Randolph was arrested and charged with drug possession with intent to sell, a felony, after being found with a large quantity of marijuana, and the crowd became increasingly unruly as arrests were made. The officers then tried to disperse the crowd, and the disturbance escalated. At one point, officers put out a call for backup from both the LAPD and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Another person who was arrested was an ex-convict in possession of a gun, police told TMZ.


Randolph was arrested at 11 p.m. following an incident at 1590 E. 114th St., according to a Los Angeles Sheriff's Department report. There were no reported injuries to officers or crowd members.

After the arrests, we're told things got insane - the crowd became unruly and LAPD had to call for backup.

Randolph signed a 2-year, $24 million contract with the Kings in July. Randolph, who spent the prior eight seasons of his National Basketball Association career in Memphis, played 39 games with the L.A. Clippers during the 2008-09 season.
