Former UNLV great and NBA troublemaker Isaiah (nee J.R.) Rider is back in trouble with
THE MAN again, after he skipped out on his arraignment hearing , according to TMZ. Rider was supposed to report to court to deal with this whole mess, but missed it for reasons unknown at this time. (My guess: alarm on cellphone didn't go off because he forgot to charge it. That happens to me, like, once a week.)
Before and after college Rider's had a career marred by character issues, milkshake assaults, drug use, battery, theft — all sorts of nonsense. Rider, who is 37-years-old and not doing anything productive with his life right now, but there still seemed to be little chance that this guy was actualy making this arraignment. He doesn't seem like a morning person.
Right now, the story is still listed as "developing", so I'll post an update if anybody ever finds out where Rider is.
