Delonte West Arrested on Weapons Charges

An NBA star Delonte West was pulled over and arrested on Thursday night after a police officer found he was carrying three loaded guns, authorities said.

West, a guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers, was driving a three-wheeled motorcycle north on Interstate 95 near Route 214 in the Largo area when he cut off a police officer, authorities said.

The officer pulled him over, and West told the officer that he was carrying a handgun in his waistband.
That prompted the officer to call for backup, 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.

West, 26, was arrested and charged with speeding and two counts of carrying a handgun.

He was released today on personal recognizance, according to online court records.
