Los Angeles Lakers Alex Caruso was arrested and released on Tuesday for possession of both marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

According to Texas A&M’s Lieutenant Bobby Richardson, the guard was trying to board a flight from College Station, Texas and the Transportation and Security Administration found what seemed to be a herb grinder with marijuana packed inside. 

Both are misdemeanor charges and according to reports, Caruso was arrested and later released after posting bond. 

Alex Caruso is an unrestricted free agent this offseason and also played collegiately at Texas A&M. Caruso joined the Lakers in 2017 and has averaged 6.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.8 assist in more than 50 games in the season that just passed.
