Timberwolves Forward Michael Beasley Was Cited For Marijuana Possession? Unpossible!
According to initial reports, Minnesota Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley has been cited for marijuana possession and speeding by police in Minnetonka, a suburb of Minneapolis.
Via KARE 11:
Beasley was pulled over on June 26 for speeding around 3 a.m. on Interstate 394 and Carlson Parkway. He was clocked at 84 mph in a 65 mph zone.
Police also found 16.2 grams of marijuana in Beasley’s vehicle.
Both offenses are petty misdemeanors which will result in fines.
Sixteen grams, eh? In light of the petty misdemeanor charges, this will likely cause nary a problem for Beasley within the State of Minnesota’s criminal justice system, but Beasley might incur the wrath of David Stern whenever the NBA lockout is lifted, if that ever happens.
But perhaps worst of all? Remember these comments Timberwolves GM David Kahn made last July regarding Beasley and the basketball player’s marijuana use?
“He’s a very young and immature kid who smoked too much marijuana and has told me that he’s not smoking anymore,” Kahn said, “and I told him that I would trust him as long as that was the case.”
So, in essence, due to his actions, Beasley has caused Kahn to retroactively appear like a complete fool, and that’s something that Kahn can handle well enough on his own without Beasley’s help, thank you very much.
