Former NBA player found guilty of criminal possession of a weapon
Former NBA player Sebastian Telfair was convicted of criminal possession of a weapon Wednesday over a 2017 Bedford-Stuyvesant arrest where a cop found four loaded guns in his car, as well as hundreds of rounds of ammunition.
In the early morning hours of June 11, 2017, a police officer pulled Telfair over in his Ford F150 because he did not have his headlights on, according to a criminal complaint.
The officer said that Telfair had a joint burning in the center console, and that he also recovered two Ziplock baggies of marijuana.
He also said he found a loaded .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol in the center console.
