He was driving a Ford F-150 with a friend around 2.50am on June 11, 2017 when police said they pulled over the duo because their truck's headlights weren't on. In total, they found three loaded pistols, a gas-operated submachine gun, extended magazines, ammunition and the ballistic vest.

Former NBA player Sebastian Telfair has been sentenced to three and a half years in prison for gun possession, Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez announced Monday. "I can go play in China for six years and take care of my family".

On Monday, he complained in court that he was being penalized too harshly for a "victimless crime". However, they were legally licensed in Florida-where he lived-and not in NY, where they were discovered.

If Alisson is set to miss 6-8 weeks of football, he will most likely not feature in the games against both those London clubs. Liverpool are in UEFA Super Cup action on Wednesday night, taking on Chelsea in Istanbul.

Telfair was also arrested on gun charges in 2007.

As a point guard at Abraham Lincoln High School in Brooklyn, he was on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 2004.

The officers said they smelled burning marijuana inside the auto, prompting them to order the passengers out and arrest them before searching the vehicle. He was facing a potential sentence of 15 years behind bars, according to TMZ.

The NYPD insists they carried out an internal investigation into the matter. He never lived up to the hype in the pros, but did play a decade in the National Basketball Association for eight different teams, finishing with career averages of 7.4 points and 3.5 assists per game. He played for eight teams in the league-Portland, Boston, Minnesota, Toronto, the Los Angeles Clippers, Phoenix, Cleveland and Oklahoma City.
