Today in Hip Hop News, Former New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert was detained over the weekend after cops allegedly discovered a "sizable" amount of marijuana in his backpack at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
According to TMZ Sports, Shumpert was detained at a TSA checkpoint about 2:40 p.m. on Saturday by officials reacting to a probable narcotics violation complaint.
Further investigation revealed that Shumpert's bag contained 6.12 ounces of a "green leafy substance," which the 32-year-old Shumpert confirmed was marijuana. Later testing verified the presence of the drug.
