Professional basketball player Mike Scott was arrested in Atlanta on drug charges Thursday, police said.
Scott, a 27-year-old backup forward for the Atlanta Hawks, was allegedly caught with more than an ounce of marijuana and 10.9 grams of MDMA or “Molly,” the Associated Press reports.
The sheriff’s office in Banks County said deputies attempted to stop an SUV driven by Scott’s younger brother Antonn for following too closely on Interstate 85 just outside Atlanta, after which they found the drugs on the NBA player when the vehicle finally pulled over after going at 98 mph for about two miles.
Scott has reportedly been charged with felony possession of marijuana and possession of a Schedule I drug, while his brother faces additional charges.
The Hawks did not comment but said they were aware of the situation.
