A former NBA guard Delonte West, who played for the Boston Celtics, Seattle SuperSonics, Cleveland Cavaliers, Dallas Mavericks and struggled with mental illness and drugs in recent years, was arrested on Tuesday night after a bizarre encounter with Boynton Beach police, via WPTV:
“A case report from Boynton Beach police said that just before 9 p.m., officers responded to the department’s lobby, located at 2100 High Ridge Road, for an individual yelling and banging on the glass doors. The report states that West, 38, was screaming profanities while holding an open can of Icehouse beer and an open bottle of Mango Vodka.
“The report said that West smelled of alcohol and his speech was slowed and slurred, consistent with impairment. West faces charges of resisting an officer without violence, disorderly intoxication and having an open container.”
