During a week in which former dance partner P.J. Carlesimo returned to the sports headlines, former Warriors, Knicks and Timberwolves standout Latrell Sprewell ran afoul of authorities on New Year’s Day, though to be perfectly, this might not even be the 4th or 5th most exciting thing he’s ever been accused of. From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel’s Raquel Rutledge :
Milwaukee native and former NBA star Latrell Sprewell was arrested for disorderly conduct Monday afternoon after police received repeated complaints about loud music coming from a house on E. Pleasant St. on Milwaukee’s east side, according to jail records reviewed by the Journal Sentinel Tuesday.
Police would not release details of the incident other than to report that police had received two complaints within one hour Monday afternoon and had received several complaints of loud music from the residence in recent months.
Sprewell’ ended his NBA career his career in 2005. According to media reports at the time, Sprewell turned down a $21 million three-year contract with the Timberwolves, suggesting the amount wasn’t enough to feed his children.
And with those 2005 reports firmly in mind, how great would it have been if Spree had been blasting this song all afternoon?
