This is not how you want to start a weekend ...
Brian Windhorst of the Plain Dealer reports:
WUSA, a television station in Washington D.C., reported today that West was pulled over in Prince George's County, MD., at 10 p.m. Thursday night for making an unsafe lane change on his motorcycle. The police say West had two handguns and a shotgun in his possession and he was arrested.
West was released on his own recognizance and is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 20.
Yes, you read that correctly. Delonte was somehow concealing two handguns and a shotgun while riding a freakin' motorcycle. You can't even do that in "Grand Theft Auto," can you? This does not sound good.
More info to come.
UPDATE: According to Matt Zapotosky at The Washington Post, Delonte was driving a three-wheeled motorcycle (like the one pictured right, I guess) when he cut off the Prince George's County cop.
The officer pulled him over, and West told the officer that that he was carrying a handgun in his waistband.
That prompted the officer to call for back up, and investigators found that West was actually carrying three guns — a Beretta 9mm in his waistband, a Ruger .357 strapped to his leg and a shotgun in a guitar case slung over his back, said Maj. Andy Ellis, a spokesman for the Prince George's County Police Department.
As of now, it is still unclear where West was going or why in the world he was armed.
