According to the report, the 32-year old Brooklyn native was driving a Ford F-150 pickup truck in Bed-Stuy around 2:50 a.m. with another man, identified as 18-year old Jami Thomas, when cops pulled him over. When Telfair and Thomas were spotted by police them, police stopped them after Telfair started driving without turning the car's headlights on.

When first pulled over, police smelled what they believed to be marijuana before spotting a burning joint inside the truck, according to the Post.

Police then searched the vehicle and turned up three handguns and semiautomatic rifle, all loaded, as well as a ballistic vest, more ammunition and two bags of marijuana. When the officers stopped the auto, they spotted a blunt on the dashboard, the NYPD said.

Telfair gained considerable attention at Brooklyn's Lincoln High School, where he added to his cousin Stephon Marbury's legacy as a star point guard.

Telfair and Thomas were arraigned Sunday night in Brooklyn Criminal Court and held on bond.




He was hit with a gun charge in 2007.

Here's a photo of the haul the police found in the auto.

Telfair played 10 seasons in the NBA after being drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers 13th overall in the 2004 NBA Draft. He made a number of National Basketball Association stops, in Boston, Minnesota (twice), Los Angeles (Clippers), Cleveland, Phoenix, Toronto and Oklahoma City. The NBA suspended him for three games after his guilty plea.

The weapons found in Telfair's truck included a gas-operated sub-machine gun, three loaded pistols, extended magazines, ammunition, and a bulletproof vest.
