NBA player Alex Caruso, who previously played for the Los Angeles Lakers, was arrested Tuesday at College Station, Texas, on two misdemeanor drug charges.
The Texas A&M Police Department told ESPN that they found a herb grinder containing marijuana in free agent Caruso's bags during a preflight check at the local airport.
Brazos County (Texas) County jail records show that Caruso, 27, was charged with possessing less than two ounces of marijuana and with possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was released after paying a total of $4,200 as a cash bond and a $552 fine, per online records.
Caruso, who went to high school in College Station and played for Texas A&M, entered the NBA as an undrafted free agent with the Lakers in 2017-18.
This season, he averaged 6.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 58 games, including six starts.
