Sacramento Kings forward Zach Randolph was arrested late Wednesday night on a felony charge of marijuana possession with the intent to sell, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to USA TODAY Sports.
LAPD spokesman Drake Madison told USA TODAY Sports that Randolph, 36, was arrested around 11 p.m. PT.
Madison said an investigation is “ongoing” for an incident that coincided with Randolph’s arrest. He said officers from the LAPD Southeast Division were on a routine patrol when they encountered a large crowd blocking the street while drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana. When officers attempted to disperse the crowd, a disturbance ensued that left five LAPD squad cars and one sheriff’s vehicle damaged. Madison said Randolph was already in custody when the disturbance and damage took place.
According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office, Randolph was booked at 4:23 a.m. on Thursday and later released on $20,000 bail. He is due in court on Aug. 31.
Randolph, a two-time All-Star who has played 16 years in the league, averaged 14.1 points and 8.2 rebounds a game for the Memphis Grizzlies in 2016-17 before signing a two-year, $24 million deal with Sacramento in July.
