Is it just us, or do NBA players and legal drama go together better than Miley Cyrus and twerking!?
Well, Gilbert Arenas is the latest basketballer to find himself in a bit of hot water, but it has nothing to do with drugs or a domestic dispute.
It's because he had way too many illegal fireworks!
On June 27th, Gilbert was pulled over in Los Angeles for speeding, and when cops did a quick search of his car, they found over 100 pounds of fireworks!!
Wowzers! Sounds like Mr. Arenas had some BIG plans for the 4th of July!
Now the former sharpshooter is being charged with a misdemeanor for carrying enough pyrotechnics to fuel a Prince concert without a permit, and he could face up to a year in prison and up to $10,000 in fines!
Gilbert is expected to go to court later this month, and it probably doesn't help that California has VERY strict laws when it comes to illegal fireworks!
