Atlanta Hawks reserve forward Mike Scott was arrested along with his brother on July 30, and Scott faces up to 25 years in prison on two felony drug charges, according to Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Scott and his brother were arrested after a traffic stop when police found 35.2 grams of marijuana and 10.9 grams of Schedule 1 MDMA, also known as Molly, in the car. The MDMA charge carries a sentence of up to 15 years in prison, while the marijuana charge carries a sentence of up to 10 years.
Scott took responsibility for the drugs in the car and was released on $8,100 bond. An initial court date likely won’t occur for another couple of months.
Scott could face disciplinary measures from the Hawks and the NBA, and the league doesn’t have to wait for the legal process to conclude before handing out its own punishment.
