Ex-Knick Latrell Sprewell Arrested for Loud Music?!
“Why would I want to help them win a title?” Sprewell said at the time.
“They’re not doing anything for me. I’ve got a lot at risk here. I’ve got my family to feed. Anything can happen; it’s a long season. You never know.” – nypost
Not too many details were disclosed, but apparently ex-Knick Latrell Sprewell was arrested for “disorderly conduct” for playing loud music at his lower East-side Miwaukee home on New Years Eve! According to the report, Sprewell received two complaints within an hour after receiving numerous complaints over a period of time. Latrell is infamous for his 1997 choke incident with Golden State Warriors coach (and current Nets interim coach) P.J. Carlesimo! Sprewell spent 13 years in the NBA, and averaged over 18 points per game! His career was shortened when he refused a 3-year contract extension worth $21 Million with the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2005 (quotes above)! Although he was still solid, teams for some reason didn’t pick him up?! Check out media coverage following Latrell’s ‘infamous’ P.J. Carlesimo choking incident on video below!
Sprewell had other run-ins with the law and dealt with several financial blows: Sprewell was accused of assaulting his wife and held a 90-minute standoff with the police at Upstate NY home in 2006, the U.S. Marshalls auctioned off his yacht in 2007 for $1.5 Million and his home was foreclosed the following year, and in 2011 Sprewell was served by the IRS in Wisconsin for a booming $3.5 Million back-tax ticket!
