Iman Shumpert has made headlines this year for all the wonderful things he’s done both on and off the court. But now the NBA Champion is breaking news in another way.
Just two days after gracing the stage with his fiancée Teyana Taylor following Yeezy’s Season 4 fashion show, news reports say Shump was arrested in Georgia on suspicion of driving under the influence last month.
FOX 8 reports:
According to the police report, the officer noticed a strong smell of marijuana and noticed Shumpert’s eyes were bloodshot. When asked about the last time he smoked pot, the Cavs guard said “I just left my homegirl’s house,” the report said.
He failed a field test and kept telling the officer he just worked out, the police report said.
The Cleveland Cavaliers team released a statement: “The Cavaliers have discussed the situation with Iman and will monitor the progression of the pending case. A court date has not been set at this point, and neither Iman or the team will have any additional comments while the matter progresses through the legal process.”
The August 10th incident has been kept under wraps pretty well, since we’ve seen Iman Shumpert out and about since then. No court date has been set for the case.
