Breaking News: Delonte West Arrested (UPDATED)


According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Delonte West was arrested last night for weapons possesion near his offseason home in Maryland. The Cavs guard was pulled over for an unsafe lane change on his motorcycle. Police found two hand guns and a shotgun with West.

According to Matt Zapotosky of The Washington Post, Delonte was driving a three-wheeled motorcycle when he cut off the Prince George’s County cop.

The officer pulled him over, and West told the officer that that he was carrying a handgun in his waistband.

That prompted the officer to call for back up, and investigators found that West was actually carrying three guns — a Beretta 9mm in his waistband, a Ruger .357 strapped to his leg and a shotgun in a guitar case slung over his back, said Maj. Andy Ellis, a spokesman for the Prince George’s County Police Department.

As of now, it is still unclear where West was going or why in the world he was armed.

    Shhhhhhiiiiiitttttttt.. Delonte was about to put in some straight hood work..

  • Dan Dickau

    Guys, Delonte may be in some serious trouble here if it was a murder he was running from. Perhaps this isn’t the forum for jokes.

    Do you guys think he killed someone?


    The real travesty here is flipping Tyrone..omg.. this guy cant be serious.

  • scotsman

    now this is the kind of retarded crap the league should fine players for.

  • DH

    I don’t think this is what Lebron meant when he said he wanted to surround himself with weapons…

  • DH

    Maybe he was just headed to a team buffet dinner and wanted to get something to eat. You know Shaq don’t allow cuts.

  • Schmoovetastic

    First of all are any of you surprised?????? No… I don’t think so. Second if he had just killed someone and was getting rolled do you think he would have stopped???? HEll no he would been tearin up the streets trying to get away probably lettin a few fly at the cops.

    Oh and when he is doin time I believe we will be hearing clips of him saying things like “You better have my Corn-Bread and “I got soap on a rope, I got soap on a rope.”

    Ignorant idiot, dude needs help and a few hugs.

  • http://www.myspace.com/beenobrown BERN BROGDEN aka BINO BROWN STR8 UP N DOWN

    He’ll be alright. He did look ready to move on somebody.

    Or maybe he really was movin’ out, ya dig?

    I doubt it. Besides, others done worse.
    One. He’s a millionaire, so he probably got licenses for them thangs.
    Two. He can afford a good lawyer.
    Three. Most importantly —– the cops gave him ROR, dawg. ROR – with shotguns and 9’s and rugers while driving an atv, recklessly —- and all he got was ROR?????

    He’ll spank that then he’ll come to camp and spank Candace Parker’s bro for the starting gig.

  • LakeShow84

    Shit on a serious note..

    Were the guns registered?? Cuz if they aint he got some serious trouble on his hands..

    On a funny note a token black guy shouldve popped up outanowhere and said “uh uh ni$$a dont do that! thats 5-10!”

  • http://hornetshype.com ticktock6

    “I don’t think this is what Lebron meant when he said he wanted to surround himself with weapons…”


    Seriously, though, three guns on a motorcycle??

  • LakeShow84

    It must hurt to be known as “Candace Parkers Brother”..

  • Will

    I dont see the problem here. He had guns and he is grown…….Is it illegal in OH?

  • Royal

    Trust me, he needs to be strapped at all times when he is in P.G county


    “I got eleven mac eleven’s, about eight thirty eights, nine nine’s, ten mac ten’s the shit never ends”

    He was bumpin that old biggie on his ipod as he got pulled over. Shottie in the guitar case!???? thats gangsta shit antonio banderas type shit right there. And he’s 2nd cousins wit T.I so i think they got the same guns dealer too

  • Rico

    @Dan Dickau I have a friend in Maryland i called and he said he heard Delonte murdered three white people. He gone done messed up now. Hate when white people try to keep us down.

  • http://www.random-ish.com Sccob

    He had two burners and a shotty on a bike? That’s some GTA stuff right there. However, the way these atheletes have been caught out there these days, can’t say I blame him.

  • http://BigTmusic.com Balla

    LOL @ 12. I think we all read that and said the same thing, “On a MOTORCYCLE?”

    Dime, yall are wrong for that pic yall posted of Delonte. Have you ever noticed that when somebody gets arrested for some dumbness in the news, the news reporters always find the most goonish pic of them?

  • life-p

    I do the same thing after watching the Terminator.

  • spangatanga

    hahaha… 3 guns? omg, maybe a serious case of Schizophrenia?
    Delonte: There chasing me…
    Cop: Who’s chasing you, there’s nobody here!
    Delonte: no really, there comming to get me, can’t you see them??

  • ldawg23

    What a great way to end my day…Im rolling over here
    the bad dude from Raising Arizona (classic movie btw)
    Was a Semi Chasing him? (awesome again)
    The bitch who put that shit on his lip (cold blooded pimpin)
    ALL THAT ON A MOTORCYCLE…no shit, homeboy was ready to put in SERIOUS work…Maybe he works for the Real Thug Tyrone

  • Bron42 aka Had Springs before Slamball

    Damn son went straight desparado wit the gun in the guitar case lol I agree wit doc though, as quickly as people say “oh athletes shouldn’t carry guns” you can point out cases where people targeted athletes. Hell people rolled up in springs house and killed him. The guy from the bills had people spray paint his front lawn. And you hardly hear about athletes goin out shootin people….well not countin ray carroth

  • Dan Dickau


    Thanks for the info. This is devastating to hear. I can’t believe he murdered three people. He’s definitely going to miss at least one season.

    Guys, let’s everybody keep Delonte and his family in our prayers tonight, he’s going to need all the support he can get.

    God Bless,
    Dan Dickau

  • Russ

    damn. he went all el mariachi on us…

  • jamestown

    yall hilarious… dat Jay Z “la la la” line, and herpes line lol

  • the cynic

    well everyone has already busted out the movie references I would have made.

    Has there been any news if these were unregistered weapons? I highly doubt Delonte is dumb enough to tell an officer he is carry an unregistered hand gun in his waist. People are well within there rights to carry a gun, and rich people do get put in the crosshairs, but 3 guns! really delonte!?!?! was the third in case the sidearm got stolen? I guess i should have 2 spare tires in the back of my car from now on

  • rangerjohn

    i keep reading people talking about things like he might get shot or robbed so he needs to carry? i mean damn i live in houston which has a pretty high crime rate, i drive a nice truck, and i have never had a problem. wouldnt it be a better idea to rather then be carrying ridiculous guns, just stay away from those areas of town? i mean damn you have made millions, you dont need to hang out in the ghetto. hell i am a white guy who has lived in a 3rd world country driving a nice BMW and was never once even looked at wrong. it is all about looking for trouble and carrying 3 guns, HE WAS LOOKING FOR TROUBLE. i hope he gets plaxicoed or vicked in this one, make an example out of his dumb ass.

  • Taj

    Dan Dickau… Your hilarious!!!!

  • George W Kush Sr

    WOW. My man was rollin with 3 pieces on a bike?!? With all that money, he couldn’t pay Tyrone to go shoot em up? Now that’s a fool

  • David_Brandon

    will someone hurry up and hand dan dickau some tissue or something.

    do you know delonte personally or something? i just never seen somebody so worried about a hooper they DONT know…

  • Dan Dickau


    “Delonte West was protecting John Connor from the T-1000. All charges have been dropped.”

    Whoo. I was getting real worried there for a second. Let’s continue to pray for Delonte and his family.

    Why in the world would he cut off a cop on the road on his 3 wheel bike when hes strapped like that????…. he must of been high as a muddasucka..

  • bill

    lol at 22 and 27

    My first thought was the movie desparado…

    Good job on the terminator too… pardon the pun :)

    Imagine his arsenal at home with rocket launchers and the BFG from DOOM ha ha

  • fan

    It is illegal to carry concealed weapons and to transport loaded guns in Maryland…. he’s done

  • fan

    and his motorcycle looks like a rascal

  • fan

    how can you be strapped on a tricycle???? or maybe that’s why he was strapped… because i would have clowned his ass

  • hadoken

    why the fuck is he cutting off a cop? this dumbass deserves to go to jail unless he forgot that he was packing which he obviously didn’t. i dont care how hard of a nigga he thinks he is, no gangster with half a brain would go all reckless on the highway near anything with flashing lights. i know you bailed yourself out of jail already, delonte, and i hope you have fun enjoying your freedom while you got it, cuz your ass is going right back to jail eventually, herpes lip.


    A gun in a guitar case?! Delonte going El Mariachi.
    “It’s easier to pull the trigger than play guitar.”

  • …IIIII…

    i wanna know where he was goin with all them. one gun for protection is almost understandable, but 2 handguns an a shotty!! he was either movin’ house or somethin big was about to go down.

  • Chise

    Yo real talk…

    The people closest to Delonte better keep a close eye on him right now and they should probably be legitimately worried. Wasn’t dude battling some social disorder or mental health issue awhile back? I dunno man this whole situation seems eerily too similiar to Maurice Clarette, I really hope Delonte ain’t lose his marbles like Marbury did.

  • eyeused2b

    “and a shotgun in a guitar case slung over his back”
