Ben Wallace, the veteran center of the Detroit Pistons, was arrested over the weekend and charged with drunk driving, but that’s not even the most serious charge: when police searched Wallace’s 2007 Cadillac Escalade, they found an unloaded pistol in the backpack.
Oops. According to Fox Detroit:
He is charged with Operating a Motor Vehicle (93-day misdeamor) while Intoxicated and Unlawful Carrying of a Concealed Weapon (5-year felony).
Wallace, who turned 37 in September, is set to make $2.246 million next season – assuming there is a season.
