GILBERT ARENAS
CHARGED FOR ILLEGAL FIREWORKS
Faces Jail Time
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NBA star Gilbert Arenas has been charged with a crime for transporting more than 100 pounds of dangerous fireworks right before the 4th of July ... and could face serious jail time, TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... Arenas was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol on June 27 for speeding ... and during the bust, cops say they found more than 100 pounds of fireworks.

Arenas was arrested -- and now, we've learned he's been charged with misdemeanor possession of dangerous fireworks without a permit.

Law enforcement tells TMZ ... because he had more than 100 pounds of bang bang, he faces up to 1 year in county jail and up to $10,000 in fines.

TMZ cameras were rolling during the bust -- as the LAPD bomb squad (carefully) removed the explosives from Gilbert's Ford truck.

Arenas is due in court for the matter next month.

This is just about the stupidest thing I've heard recently. The bomb squad needed to remove the fireworks from his car..... Yet a bunch of people can sell them out of little wooden shacks in grocery store parking lots?

When I was a kid I typically had 100 lbs of fireworks each summer that me and my friends would use. I remember buying 10k bricks of firecrackers once a week at allowance time.....

ALL of this ^

And i bet Gilbert recalls being able to buy fireworks by the brick as a child as well without the bomb squad needing to be involved.

If you were born before or in the mid to late 70's to early 80's i'd imagine this seems utterly bizarre and reeks of someone being made an example of due to celebrity.

Gilbert Arenas Ordered To Lecture Fifth-Graders As Park Of Illegal Fireworks Conviction

A Los Angeles County judge has ordered former NBA All-Star guard Gilbert Arenas to serve two years probation and 10 hours of community service stemming from his illegal fireworks conviction.

According to TMZ.com, as part of a plea deal agreement in which he formally pleaded no contest, the 32-year-old Arenas was also ordered to pay a $10,000 fine and further instructed to serve all of his community service by lecturing fifth grade students about fireworks safety.


Arenas was arrested last June 27, when police stopped his vehicle and found him transporting more than 100 pounds of "dangerous." and illegal fireworks.

Arenas played 11 NBA seasons and was named a three-time all star. His best season came with the Washington Wizards in 2005-6, when he averaged 29.3 points, 6.1 assists and 3.5 rebounds. Over his career, Arenas averaged 21 points, five assists and four rebounds.

Arenas is also well-known for a 2010 incident in which he and then Wizards teammate Javaris Crittenton engaged in a gun-wielding standoff in the team locker room at the height of a gambling related dispute. Both were suspended for the remainder of the season, and Arenas never averaged more than eight points again in a NBA season.
