From NBA superstar to… jailbird? Ex-NBA player, Jeff Adrien has found himself in HOT water with the police lately on MORE than one occasion. The latest? The athlete was arrested after allegedly attacking police officers! Come on, Jeff, you should know better.
Uh oh! Jeff Adrien, 30, has been arrested once again, making this his third time in just three months! After cops said he tried to kick a police officer, the former UConn basketball star was taken into custody where he was charged with MULTIPLE offenses — whew! The guy just cannot seem to stay out of trouble. Read all about Jeff’s crazy run-in with the law below.
Busted in Brooklyn on Jan. 13, the basketball stud — who played five seasons in the NBA — was arrested after cops said they tried to stop him for a simple and routine traffic violation, according to TMZ. Unfortunately for Jeff, he refused to comply with the officers’ request, and what unfolded turned out to be quiet the scene!
Jeff instantly lost his cool, pushed the arresting officers, and “repeatedly kicked” at them, according to the cops on the scene. And at 6′ 7,” 243 pounds, Jeff is definitely a guy who can cause some damage! But shouldn’t Jeff know by now that you don’t mess with the police? The cops ended up taking him into custody and he was charged with, not one, but THREE offenses: misdemeanor resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration, and operating a vehicle without safety belts. What a mouthful!
And this is only the latest problem for Jeff. The Ex-NBA star was also arrested for allegedly attacking a security guard at the Trump Soho on Jan. 10 as well as being cuffed back in Dec. 2015 for allegedly stealing a Mercedes from a valet stand in LA and taking it on a six-hour joyride. His behavior is something that we just cannot help but shake our heads at. Jeff will be due in court come July for this latest case of police assault. Hopefully he’ll be able to clean up his act in these next few months!
