After the Los Angeles Lakers have been eliminated from the 2021 NBA Playoffs, Alex Caruso is having quite the off-season as the Lakers’ guard was arrested on Tuesday for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

According to arrest records, the 27-year-old Texas native was arrested at his alma mater Texas A&M University as he attempted to board a plane at the Easterwood Airport in College Station with less than two ounces of weed along with a grinder. He was released the same day after paying a $4,200 USD bond.

A fan favorite of the Lakers’ community, Caruso is an unrestricted free agent this summer and remains to be seen if the front office intends to extend his contract. The 6-foot-4 guard is known to have great chemistry with teammate Lebron James but didn’t quite make a major impact in the 2020-2021 season as he averaged 6.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists.

The NBA and Lakers organization have yet to respond to the matter, but James along with netizens had a field day with the news. Check out the reactions to Caruso’s arrest below.
