Wilson Chandler Arrested For Misdemeanor Marijuana Possession

From The Daily News, Wilson Chandler got himself into a bit of mischief last night:

Knicks forward Wilson Chandler was busted in Queens last night with a joint and five bags of pot, police sources Wednesday.

The tattooed-covered rising star was pulled over in his 2010 Mercedes-Benz was on 94th Ave. and 213th St. at 11:30 p.m. for driving with his headlights off.

"When they approached the vehicle, they smelled...and observed smoke," a source said of the arresting officers.

They found the pot in the trunk, sources said.

Chandler, who had a 22-year-old passenger, was arrested and charged with criminal possession of marijuana. He was given a desk appearance ticket.

First of all, "tattoo-covered"? Really? That's relevant? Second of all, buns for Wilson. Not an ideal start to the summer.

Thanks to everyone who picked up on and posted the story in the comments and sidebar sections (especially MarinoNeedsRB). I just wanted to get this news in one place on the front page to consolidate commenting. Y'all are the best. D.A.R.E.
