Gilbert Arenas was arrested early this morning in Los Angeles after cops pulled him over on the highway and found a treasure trove of illegal fireworks in his truck. According to TMZ:
Law enforcement sources tell us Arenas was pulled over by California Highway Patrol around 2:30 AM in Los Angeles for speeding in a Ford pickup — but officers immediately saw that the truck was filled with fireworks … sitting in plain sight in the bed and cab of the truck.
We’re told Arenas was arrested and will be booked for possession of illegal fireworks — and will be cited for speeding — he was allegedly doing 80 mph — and driving without a license.
There were so many fireworks in the truck that the bomb squad had to come unload it. I would ask what he was doing with so many fireworks, but 4th of July is a week away. Obviously, Gilbert Arenas was planning an amazing fireworks display. For that he should be commended. [via TMZ]
