Sebastian Telfair Arrested With Small Arsenal Of Weapons

By HHL Editors

Sebastian Telfair never lived up to the hype that followed him when he was a high school baller in Brooklyn.

But Stephon Maybury's little cousin did play for ten seasons in the NBA and made almost $20 million.

He's going to need some of the cash for a good lawyer after he got caught riding really dirty in his hometown.

The 32-year old was arrested in Brooklyn when cops pulled him over around 2:50 a.m. Sunday morning and uncovered a weapons cache in his vehicle.

Telfair and his passenger, 18-year-old Jami Thomas, had three loaded firearms, one semi-automatic rifle, a bulletproof vest, a large quantity of ammunition and two bags of marijuana inside the car.

Telfair, who was driving, was charged with unlawful possession of a ballistic vest, unlawful possession of ammunition magazine, possession of a controlled substance, aggravated unlicensed operator of a motor vehicle and a motor vehicle equipment violation.

In 2007, Telfair was charged with second-degree possession of a handgun in Yonkers.

They don't play around with gun charges in New York City, so Telfair is in for the fight of his life.
