According to TMZ Sports, Zach Randolph was reportedly arrested for Marijuana possession Wednesday night in Los Angeles.
Randolph, who signed with the Sacramento Kings earlier this summer, was one of three people detained by Los Angeles police on Wednesday. They charged the 36-year-old with possession of marijuana with intent to sell because of a “large amount of weed found.”
The situation escalated quickly. LAPD had to call for backup after the scene got out of hand, and the aftermath left six cop cars vandalized, according to TMZ. It’s unknown if Randolph was involved with the extra curricular activity, but his charge is a felony, and the 6-9 former All-Star got slapped with a $20,000 bail.

Randolph signed a two-year, $24 million deal with the Kings in July after eight seasons with the Memphis Grizzlies. He’s expected to serve as a mentor to Willie Cauley-Stein, Skal Labissiere and Harry Giles, three of the Kings future frontcourt pieces.
In 2017, Randolph swallowed his pride and accepted a bench role for Memphis. He averaged 14.1 points and 8.2 rebounds a night in 24.5 minutes a night. Randolph’s career with the Grizzlies saw him put up 16.8 points and 10.2 boards while shooting 47.6 percent from the field.
