I've heard of people getting the munchies, but this is taking things a bit too far.
WTOV9.com reports that former journeyman NBA center Samaki Walker was pulled over with illegal drugs in his vehicle, so he allegedly tried to limit his legal exposure by shovelling the contraband down his gullet.
Former NBA player Samaki Walker was arrested in Arizona on Thursday night for possession of marijuana and liquid steroids.99 problems, and indigestion is one.
After being pulled over in his 2002 Mercedes-Benz during a routine traffic stop in Kingman (Ariz.), Walker attempted to eat eight grams of marijuana before he was arrested.
Officials seized a total of approximately 10 grams of marijuana, in addition to some prescription drugs and eight bottles of liquid steroids.
Walker, 35, was selected by the Dallas Mavericks with the No. 9 pick in the 1996 NBA Draft, selected before future Hall of Famers Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash. He averaged 5.3 points and 4.7 rebounds in 10 NBA seasons. He last suited up for the Indiana Pacers in 2005-2006 and has played overseas since then, most recently in Korea and Syria.
Walker was a member of the 2002 NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers and therefore has one more ring than Miami Heat forward LeBron James.
