Rajon Rondo, who won NBA crowns with the Celtics and Lakers, was arrested for possession of a firearm, drug paraphernalia, and marijuana

Former NBA guard Rajon Rondo was arrested on gun and drug charges in Indiana on Sunday, January 28.

Rondo, 37, was arrested for unlawful possession of a firearm, drug paraphernalia, and marijuana, which are all misdemeanor charges, according to court documents and a spokesperson for the Indiana State Police, per WDRB-TV.

Rondo was pulled over Sunday afternoon in Jackson County initially on a traffic violation. After the officer smelled marijuana, the vehicle was searched and found to have a gun and drug paraphernalia.

Due to a no-contact order, Rondo is not legally allowed to possess a firearm. In 2022, he had an emergency protective order filed against him by a woman who claimed that Rondo threatened her with a gun and had a history of “volatile, erratic (and) explosive behavior,” according to ESPN.

Rondo last played in the NBA during the 2021-2022 season, finishing a career that spanned 16 seasons. A four-time All-Star, he won two NBA titles, one with the Boston Celtics in 2008 and with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2020.

He started with and spent the majority of his career with the Celtics (2006-2015) before stints with the Dallas Mavericks (2015), Sacramento Kings (2015-2016), Chicago Bulls (2016-2017), New Orleans Pelicans (2017-2018), Atlanta Hawks (2020-2021), Los Angeles Clippers (2020-2021), Cleveland Cavaliers (2021-2022) and the Los Angeles Lakers (2018-2020, 2021-2022).

In 957 career games, he averaged 9.8 points, 7.9 assists and 1.6 steals. – Rappler.com
