Former Celtics and Lakers star Rajon Rondo was arrested over the weekend.
WDRB reported Rondo was arrested for unlawful possession of a firearm, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.
Indiana State Police pulled Rondo over in Jackon County and searched Rondo after smelling a strong odor of marijuana stemming from Rondo’s vehicle.
Rondo was not allowed to possess a firearm due to a previous no-contact order filed against him.
According to ESPN, the previous protective order filed against alleged Rondo threatened a woman with a gun and had a track record of displaying “volatile, erratic and explosive behavior” in front of the woman’s children.
