Iman Shumpert Arrested In Texas. According to TMZ, the former Cleveland Cavalier was set to travel to Los Angeles this afternoon.

Upon going through TSA, they discovered a small plastic bag of weed. Well, they wasted no time calling the authorities citing a drug violation.

Next, authorities tested the substance to find out it contained 6.12 oz of weed. Sources say he didn’t hesitate to admit to carrying marijuana.

Subsequently, police took Shumpert to the airport jail. Needless to say, he’s married to R&B songstress Teyana Taylor.

Well, the father of two intended to fly to LA and spend time with his daughters–when TSA reprimanded him from boarding his Delta Airlines flight.

Importantly, the Georgia Tech alum faces a hefty fine plus jail time. In the state of Texas, marijuana possession of 2 ounces or less is a Class B misdemeanor.
