Former Villanova Star Cunningham Facing Drug-Possession Charge
RADNOR, Pa. (CBS/AP) — Police in Radnor (Montgomery County, Pa.) say Charlotte Bobcats forward Dante Cunningham, once a star of the Villanova basketball team, faces a drug-possession charge after police found a small amount of marijuana in his pickup during a traffic stop.
Radnor Township police superintendent William Colarulo says officers responding to a reckless driving complaint on Friday stopped the former Villanova star.
Colarulo says officers smelled marijuana and recovered a suspicious substance after Cunningham consented to a search. That search also turned up a pellet gun in violation of a local ordinance.
Cunningham was arraigned and released on bail. Messages left with the team on Tuesday were not immediately returned.
The Portland Trail Blazers traded Cunningham to Charlotte in February. He averaged nine points and four rebounds in 22 games for the Bobcats.
