Former Utah Jazz center Robert Whaley must not have saved anything from his Nba days because he is trippin, police in Salt Lake County arrested Robert Whaley and found marijuana “between his buttocks,” according to a jail document.
Whaley, 27, had warrants for his arrest for absconding from a probation in Michigan. A police document filed with the Salt Lake County jail says gang detectives stopped a car about 4:30 a.m. Thursday. Whaley was a passenger and was not wearing a seat belt, the document says. Whaley identified himself to police as Kareem Johnson, the document says. Apparently, it didn’t fool detectives.
“They recognized him as being a former Jazz player,” an officer said. Police discovered Whaley had a warrant for his arrest. “Robert was also found to be in possession of several baggies of marijuana that he was holding between his buttocks,” a police officer wrote. Whaley remained in the Salt Lake County jail on Friday morning. The jail’s Web site says he is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
