I was hoping to talk about Gilbert Arenas – one of the best 2nd round draft picks ever. Instead, i’m talking about Gilbert Arenas the pistol waiving headcase that was arrested early this morning for “illegal fireworks.
This is TMZ’s report
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 cited for speeding — he was allegedly doing 80 mph — and driving without a license.
It’s unclear exactly how much fireworks were in the truck, but it was enough that the LAPD bomb squad was called to handle the illegal booty.
Our camera guy counted around 20 boxes being unloaded … very carefully.
