COLLEGE STATION – Los Angeles Lakers guard Alex Caruso was arrested in College Station on Tuesday after he reportedly tried to board a plane while in possession of marijuana residue and drug paraphernalia.
Inside the bags they found a grinder with marijuana residue, Texas A&M police told the outlets.
Records with the Brazos County Jail show Caruso, 27, was charged with possession of fewer than 2 ounces of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
In Texas, possession of up to two ounces of marijuana is a Class B misdemeanor, which can be punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.
He has since been released on bond, records show.
Lakers star LeBron James later reacted to the arrest on Twitter, posting a gif that joked “straight cash homey.”
Caruso played for Texas A&M and graduated with a degree in sports management before joining the Lakers in 2017.
He re-signed with the team in 2019, but according to ESPN, he is an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
