Today NBA All-Star and Houston Rocket Steve Francis appeared in court.
There are three charges against the former point guard, two of them are in Harris County after Francis was stopped for driving under the influence then allegedly said some inappropriate things to the officers involved during the stop.
A reports from TMZ Sports states:
As we previously reported, the ex-NBA star was popped for DWI in Houston on Saturday night — and allegedly threatened revenge on the arresting officers.
He was taken to a nearby police station where he was booked — and while there, cops noted the “property” he had on him at the time … which included a bunch of weed.
According to the police report, Francis’ chain was a “yellow metallic necklace with ‘M’” … valued at $1,000,000. We’re told the value was provided to the police by Francis himself.
Cops say he also had 21.92 grams of weed with paper rolls … which seems a lot to most people but as one stoner in our office put it, “It wouldn’t get Snoop out of bed in the morning.”
Today Francis’ attorney dealt with that burglary charge. His attorney did get the former Rockets player out on bond to deal with that out of state charge. After posting bond for all three, he will head to Florida to deal with the case there before coming back to Harris County to face the charges against him here.
He has 30 days to surrender to Florida police.
