NBA forward Montrezl Harrell has been charged with drug trafficking after cops say they found three pounds of weed in his car during a traffic stop in May … and is now facing time behind bars.
According to the Charlotte Observer, the 28-year-old was pulled over by a Kentucky state trooper around 10 AM on May 12 for driving a 2020 Honda Pilot rental too close to the car in front of him … and during the stop, cops claim they smelled marijuana.
According to the report, Harrell admitted to using marijuana and pulled a small amount from his pants. However, when cops searched Harrell’s vehicle, they found a backpack containing three pounds of marijuana in vacuum-sealed bags.
Harrell’s arraignment was scheduled for Monday morning.
Harrell, who played college basketball at the University of Louisville, was charged with trafficking less that five pounds of marijuana. This is a Class D felony for first-time offenders and could lead to up to five years in prison and a fine.
Harrell — an upcoming free agent — averaged 14 points and nearly 7 rebounds a game for the Charlotte Hornets this past season.
