However, he was soon released and did not have to spend the night in Jail. The 27-year-old’s reckless decisions’ ramifications are still unclear at the time.

It is also unclear whether the LA Lakers will keep him in the lineup in the next postseason. Caruso averaged 6.4 PTS, 2.9 RBD, and 2.8 AST in this season. He was rumoured to be a part of a trade package that the Lakers were forming to acquire Damian Lillard or Chris Paul.

Alex Caruso news

Being arrested for this minor charge simply has the world in amusement at this point. I speak for myself if not the world. The internet was filled with hilarious reactions to this news. People made analogies that Caruso was Lebron’s supplier and Lebron was going to get him out. The joke even extended to Caruso being Bronny’s dealer( Lebron James jr).

The NBA players are not allowed to consume any drugs with the exception of alcohol and tobacco during the regular season. Therefore Caruso will not face any action from the league’s side. Coincidentally D’Angelo Russell was also arrested a few years ago for marijuana possession. Additionally, he was trying to take it through an airport which makes it a federal crime. However, his career really changed on its own as he got a brief stint with the Golden State Warriors before being traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves
