Zach Randolph’s tenure with the Grizzlies came to an end this summer, as the veteran power forward was not going to be brought back to Memphis, where he played for eight years and became an icon in the city. Prior to his resurgence in Memphis as a beloved figure, Randolph, still an immense talent, had dealt with some off-court issues during his time with the Trail Blazers.

In Memphis there was nary a peep about any off court problems for Randolph, but before his stint with the Sacramento Kings can begin — he signed a 2-year, $24 million deal this summer — he’s found himself in trouble. On Wednesday night, Randolph was arrested at 11 p.m. along with two others after police were called to a Los Angeles neighborhood where people were blocking the street, playing loud music, and smoking weed, according to TMZ.

Randolph was arrested and charged with felony marijuana possession with intent to sell, due to the large amount of marijuana found. His bail, per the Los Angeles Sherriff’s Department database, is set at $20,000.

According to TMZ, after Randolph and the others were arrested, multiple police vehicles were vandalized as police recovered drugs, two guns, and a “significant amount” of cash from the scene. It’s unknown if any of that belonged to Randolph. As for Randolph’s status, his representatives have not spoken on the situation as of yet.

Update: The Kings released a brief statement acknowledging the incident, but said they would have no further comment on the situation.
