    Cavs guard West arrested on weapons charges

    UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) -- Cleveland Cavaliers guard Delonte West was arrested Thursday after officers pulled him over for speeding on a motorcycle while carrying two loaded handguns and a loaded shotgun in a guitar case.

    Prince George's County police spokeswoman Sgt. Michelle Reedy said Friday the Cleveland Cavaliers player was arrested about 10 p.m. Thursday.

    Reedy said West was riding a Can-Am Spyder motorcycle north on the Capital Beltway in Upper Marlboro when he cut off an officer, who pulled him over.

    Police said a handgun was found in his pocket, another in his pant leg and a shotgun in a guitar case strapped to his back.

    Reedy said West "was very cooperative, there were no issues" during the incident.

    The 26-year-old West, who lives in Brandywine, was charged with speeding and weapons counts. It is illegal to carry concealed weapons and to transport loaded guns in Maryland, according to police. Reedy said West was released on his own recognizance early Friday.

    Cavaliers general manager Danny Ferry said the team was monitoring the situation.

    "We have been in communication with Delonte and his family," Ferry said in a statement. "We are gathering more information and will not have further comment until the appropriate time."

    Online court records did not list an attorney for West.

    Last year, West left the Cavaliers' training camp to seek treatment for depression and a "mood disorder" he said he has battled his entire life. At the time, he said he was taking medication and attending therapy sessions. West said his mood problems date to his childhood.

    West has said his mood swings seem to be most erratic when his life seems to be in order.

    Cpl. Clinton Copeland, a Prince George's County police spokesman, said West was carrying a Beretta 9mm handgun, a Ruger .357 magnum handgun, and a Remington 870 shotgun. Copeland said the penalties West could face if convicted had not been determined.

    I don't get it. Here we have guys that make more during a one-hour game that many of us make in a year.
    They have the $$ and names to get the 'special' treatment to get permits in difficult places. Then they pull these stunts and gamble their livelihoods...pretty dumb!

    +100 to that. Common sense...isn't.

    So true - you'd think with that kind of money, he could afford to hire a weapons bearer (thinking safari here)...
