King Of The Court Fouls Out With Law Enforcement
Noah's charges made headlines on at least a dozen newspapers worldwide, including France and Canada.
Police stopped the former University of Florida star basketball player not once, but twice during Noah's Memorial Day visit to Gainesville.
Over the Memorial Day weekend, Gainesville Police arrested the Chicago Bulls Rookie in the wee hours Sunday for having an open container of alcohol in his car and a marijuana cigarette was found in a cigarette case in his front pocket.
Because he was found with less than 20 grams of marijuana, Noah was released with a misdemeanor charge.
Noah's run-in with law enforcement wasn't over, close to 7:30 Sunday night he received 2 traffic citations just feet away from the University Police Station. One citation for driving 32 miles an hour in a 20 mile an hour zone. The other citation for driving unknowingly with a suspended license, which is a moving violation and not a criminal one. However combined, they add up to a whopping $200 in fines.
Noah, who turned pro after his second national championship win, follows a long history of athletes who are fouling out with the law when off the court.
