Richaun Holmes Arrested On Marijuana Charge

Suns center Richaun Holmes was arrested in South Florida on Wednesday night, according to David Ovalle of The Miami Herald, who reports that Holmes was booked on a misdemeanor marijuana charge.

As Ovalle details, Holmes and former Nets forward James Webb III were pulled over in Aventura and were charged with possession of cannabis. Both players posted bond after spending a couple hours in a Miami jail.

Holmes, who was traded from Philadelphia to Phoenix last summer, averaged 8.2 PPG and 4.7 RPG in 70 games (16.9 MPG) for the Suns in 2018/19. Having spent his first four seasons on a single contract, Holmes will reach the open market for the first time this offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

As for Webb, he appeared in 10 games for Brooklyn during the 2017/18 campaign, but didn’t play in the NBA in 2018/19, spending the season with Telekom Baskets Bonn in Germany.

Holmes is the second Suns player to be arrested in Florida this month, joining teammate Josh Jackson. However, given the minor nature of Holmes’ infraction, it’s unlikely to have much impact on his upcoming free agency.

    If the NBA banned every player that smokes weed, I’D be playing in the NBA.

    Marijuana is a medicine, it keeps getting classified as a gateway drug when it is far from it. Holmes is stupid for driving with the stuff though. It’s utter nonsense authorities still even arrest people for it, I mean it’s a plant for Christ’s sake.

    I can’t believe these states who still arrest people for weed. Yes it’s illegal in those states, but just right them a damn ticket. It’s ridiculous in this day and age.
