Los Angeles Lakers guard Alex Caruso was arrested and released Tuesday for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, according to Texas A&M police.
Both are misdemeanor charges.
Texas A&M Police Department Lt. Bobby Richardson told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne that around 2 p.m. local time, Caruso attempted to board a flight at Easterwood Airport, which is located on the A&M property.
The Transportation and Security Administration searched Caruso’s bags and found an herb grinder that contained marijuana, Richardson said.
According to online records, Caruso was arrested for possession of less than two ounces of marijuana. He was released after posting bail.
Caruso played collegially at Texas A&M. He is an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
Since signing with the Lakers in 2017, the 27-year-old has played a key role off the bench in the past four seasons. He averaged 6.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 58 games last season. (ESPN)
