TMZ Sports has learned after former NBA guard Delonte West was arrested in mid-October – he was busted again just two weeks later.

“The Fairfax County Police Dept. tells us officers were called to a residential area on Oct. 29 at around 3:47 PM over reports of a man who appeared to be drunk. When they arrived on scene, cops say they found West ‘lying next to a car with an open door.’

“After making contact with the 39-year-old … officials say they arrested him for being drunk in public, and then transported the ex-Dallas Mavericks point guard to a nearby hospital for further evaluation.

“Court records show he was ultimately charged with misdemeanor intoxication in public … and a hearing on the matter has been set for January.”
