Charlotte Bobcats forward Dante Cunningham was reportedly arrested for speeding and marijuana and a BB gun were found in his possession. Posted bydante-cunningham Ben Golliver.

NBA Players Rule No. 1: If you were drafted in the second round, traded during the season and don't yet have a contract for next season, don't begin your offseason by getting pulled over by the police for speeding.

NBA Players Rule No. 2: Definitely don't have marijuana and a loaded BB gun in your vehicle if you fail to adhere to Rule No. 1.

Unfortunately, Charlotte Bobcats forward Dante Cunningham allegedly violated both of these rules according to NBCPhiladelphia.com.
Dante Cunningham, former Villanova basketball star and current NBA player for the Charlotte Bobcats, was arrested in Radnor Township Friday, sources tell NBC Philadelphia. 
Cunningham was pulled over by township police on the 100 block of East Lancaster Avenue for alleged speeding and reckless driving Friday, according to sources.
After Cunningham was pulled over, police found marijuana, a marijuana pipe and a loaded BB gun, sources say.
Cunningham is the son of two military parents and he has often joked about how strict his mother was in raising him. Just imagine her reaction to this. 

You did what? You had what? Where do you even buy a BB gun, Dante?

On the bright side, this incident, while bizarre, fars fall short of Delonte West's high standard for poor motor vehicle conduct

Bobcats F Cunningham arrested with weed, BB gun

I don't understand why these athletes that have a chance to play a game for a living and get paid very well while doing cant control themselves off the court?
The same reasons that apply to the general public at large apply to professional athletes.  Contrary to popular opinion they are not super heros.  You could say the same thing about almost anyone

 "I don't understand why anyone that havs chance to work for a living and get paid very well while doing cant control themselves away from the job.

I agree 100%. It's disappointing that he put himself in a position to receive negative publicity, but what a load of crap. Reckless driving? Okay, we don't want anybody doing that. But the rest of the allegations are trivial.

This country is turning into a police state... who gives a shat about weed or a bb gun. What a non -story.
