The 2011 NBA lockout is a mere six days old, which means that we are way past due for a report of a league player getting cited for possession of marijuana. And now that I mention it, we are also (and always) way past due for a report of Michael Beasley getting busted for possession of marijuana — ideally by way of a Twitter photo. Supercool Beas satisfies all, with a slightly matured twist:
Minnetonka Police say Minnesota Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley was cited for marijuana possession and speeding in Minnetonka last week.
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.
Beasley will be fined for the petty misdemeanors, and of course David Kahn and the Timberwolves — who are reportedly looking to trade the third-year forward, anyway — can't do a thing about it. In one of Beasley's previous busts, he told reporters that he had learned from his mistake and that he could "only be cautious in the future." We suppose that a standard law enforcement bust is better than take-down via cell phone picture (see here and also here), so let's consider this progress for the reformed Supercool Beas.
