On Monday, former NBA player Lester Hudson was arrested and charged with reckless driving in his hometown of Memphis after taking police on a wild chase.
According to the police affidavit, an officer saw Hudson speeding eastbound on American Way weaving in and out of traffic, forcing other drivers to swerve to avoid hitting him. When he reached the intersection at Mt. Moriah, Hudson smoked his tires and spun his car in several circles before heading northbound on Mt. Moriah.
When the officer pulled him over, the document further states that Hudson said he wasn't going to stop next time, telling the officer, "Soon as I get out of this car I'm going to smoke your f****** a**."
The 28-year old has since been released from jail after posting a $100 bond.
Hudson was drafted by the Boston Celtics in the second round (58th overall) of the 2009 NBA Draft. He also spent brief time with the Washington Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers and the Memphis Grizzlies. He has appeared in 52 games in his short-lived pro career and averaged 4.8 PPG, 1.3 RPG, and 1.3 APG in those contests.
He last played in the league during the 2011-12 campaign.
