Ten-year NBA veteran — and Dancing With The Stars winner — Iman Shumpert has been arrested on a felony marijuana charge at the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport.
NBA player Iman Shumpert was arrested for having a “sizeable” amount of marijuana in his backpack at the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport on Saturday … TMZ Sports has learned. According to the police report, officers responded to a potential drug violation call around 2:40 PM … after TSA screeners found a plastic bag filled with a “green leafy substance” in Shumpert’s bag, which he admitted was weed.
Cops say the substance weighed 6.12 ounces and tested positive for marijuana using a mobile test.
While we can debate whether six ounces is a “sizeable” amount, this is Texas, not a state where marijuana has been legalized (CBD products can be sold under a 2019 law). In Texas, the amount Shumpert was found with is considered a felony. Police also found 14 9mm bullets in Shumpert’s luggage, however, there was no gun and that is not part of the charges.
