Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem just made news in a manner that may adversely create an impact on the Miami Heat. Haslem was arrested on Sunday for speeding, illegal car window tinting and possession of marijuana. He was driving his 2008 Mercedes Benz at 78 miles per hour in a 60 miles per hour zone when he was apprehended at around 3 p.m.
The apprehending officer became suspicious when the apprehended vehicle smelled like marijuana. A search of the vehicle yielded about 20 grams of marijuana that Haslem’s companion Antwain Fleming claimed to be his and not Haslem’s. At 10 p.m. of the same day, Haslem was released without certainty if he would face charges just like Fleming.
This may affect the Heat as Haslem could be suspended early in the season for this misdemeanor.
The Miami Heat of the NBA have just formed one of the strongest teams on paper in the offseason with LeBron James and Chris Bosh joining Dwayne Wade. Role players have been signed to beef up their roster from the free agent pool to support the Heat’s big three.
