Lakers guard Alex Caruso was busted for possession of pot on Tuesday after authorities at a Texas airport allegedly found the L.A. hooper with a grinder containing weed residue.
Yes … still illegal in Texas.
TMZ Sports has confirmed 27-year-old Caruso was arrested earlier Tuesday by Texas A&M University PD for marijuana possession (under 2 ounces) and possession of drug paraphernalia.
TSA agents at Easterwood Airport in College Station, TX allegedly found the grinder and weed residue … so they contacted A&M cops, according to a report .
Caruso – who starred at A&M between 2012-2016 – was released on $3,000 cash bond, according to Brazos County jail records. The docs also show Alex paid a $552 fine for the paraphernalia charge.
This was total bullshit.
Getting actual arrested, when all he had to do was pay a fine.
ppl on the Lakers blog are saying
“Goats need grass.” lol
Guaranteed the cop was a longhorn fan lol
He travels with a grinder? Why not just do what everyone does and take a vape cart along?
Seriously though, it’s not like he couldn’t just buy a grinder the second he lands or have hookups set up in each city…
Who the fuck even needs a grinder
