Former NBA star Shawn Kemp has landed himself in big trouble lately. He has been recently booked for a connection with a drive-by shooting. The Police department is making necessary documents to do further investigation and arrest Kemp.
Around 2:00 PM, two cars were involved in a dispute, according to Tacoma PD. Shots were fired as a result in a parking lot of a mall. One car fled the area, according to cops, and a gun was retrieved, but no injuries were recorded.
Former Sonics star Kemp was subsequently booked for the felony drive-by shooting at 5:58 PM. According to Police records, he is still in custody at the Pierce County Jail. If found guilty, Kemp can face serious jail time which can extend up to a 10-year prison sentence.
Seattle’s KIRO 7 published a video of the alleged incident Wednesday evening. The video shows a man waving an object in his left hand while engaged in a verbal confrontation with another man in a mall parking lot. The man then gets into his Porsche and drives away from the scene.
Kemp was a six-time NBA All-Star who played 14 seasons in the league. He played for the Seattle SuperSonics, Cleveland Cavaliers, Portland Trail Blazers, and Orlando Magic over the course of his 14-year career. He was the 17th overall pick in the 1989 NBA Draft and averaged 14 points and eight rebounds a game.
Kemp was previously detained in 2005 and 2006 in connection with two drug-related events. Since then, he has entered the cannabis market and now operates a dispensary in 2020. Things are looking grim for the former NBA star after such a serious accusation.
