Former NBA player Sebastian Telfair was arrested early Sunday morning on a slew of gun possession-related charges and possession of a controlled substance.
Telfair and Jami Thomas, 18, were stopped by police when their illegally parked pickup truck was seen moving with the headlights turned off. The two were arrested at 2:50 a.m. after authorities spotted a burning joint in the car. When a search of the vehicle was conducted, three loaded firearms, one semi-automatic rifle, a bulletproof vest and two bags of marijuana were found.
Telfair and Thomas were charged with unlawful possession of a ballistic vest, unlawful possession of ammunition magazine, possession of a controlled substance, aggravated unlicensed operator of a motor vehicle, and a motor vehicle equipment violation. Even though the situation that these two have found themselves in is no laughing matter, you already know Twitter still had to get their jokes off.
