Former NBA legend arrested for alleged drive-by shooting

On Wednesday, NBA All-Star Shawn Kemp was arrested and taken to Pierce County Jail in Washington following a drive-by shooting. Reports indicate that the shooting was the result of a dispute between occupants of two vehicles in the Tacoma Mall parking lot, and a firearm was seized at the scene. Luckily, no one was injured.

Kemp was chosen in the first round of the 1989 NBA draft and went on to become a highly successful player, being named to six All-Star teams. During his NBA career, spanning from 1990-2004, Kemp played for the Seattle SuperSonics, Cleveland Cavaliers, Portland Trail Blazers and Orlando Magic, before retiring from the game in 2003.

In 2005, Kemp was apprehended in Washington for having illegal drugs, to which he pleaded guilty. Two years later, in 2006, he was arrested in Houston, Texas for possession of marijuana.
