According to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, Caruso was arrested after TSA agents at the airport found an herb grinder with marijuana residue on it after they searched his bags before he was set to board a flight.
Lt. Bobby Richardson of the Texas A&M Police Department told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne that around 2 p.m. Central Time, Caruso tried to board a flight at Easterwood Airport in College Station, Texas, which is located on A&M property.
The Transportation and Security Administration searched Caruso’s bags and found a herb grinder that contained marijuana, Richardson said.
According to online records, Caruso was arrested for possession of less than two ounces of marijuana.
LeBron heard about the news and implied that he was going to bail Caruso out with “straight cash homey.”
