Montrezl Harrell is a player for the Charlotte Hornets of the NBA. The young athlete was doing well in himself until he got himself into the legal issues as a result of his own actions. Recently, Montrezl Harrell was charged with a felony after allegedly possessing 3 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop.

Harrell has been charged with drug trafficking after authorities said that they discovered three pounds of marijuana in his car during a traffic stop in May. Now the player may face prison time.

The 28-year-old was pulled over by a Kentucky state trooper at 10 a.m. on May 12 for driving a 2020 Honda Pilot rental too close to the automobile in front of him. The cops alleged that they smelled marijuana during the stop.

According to the complaint, Harrell admitted to having pot on him and withdrew a “small amount” from his trousers. Yet, detectives claimed to have discovered a backpack stuffed with three pounds of weed in vacuum-sealed pouches when they searched the vehicle.


The arraignment for Harrell was set for Monday morning. Harrell, a former University of Louisville basketball player, was charged with trafficking less than five pounds of marijuana, a Class D felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine for first-time offenders.

Harrell, who is set to become a free agent this summer, averaged 14 points and roughly 7 rebounds per game for the Charlotte Hornets last season. However, Harrell has now gotten himself into difficulty as a result of his own actions. Let’s see what sentence he will is awarded. Till then stay tuned to Thirsty.
