Brown charged with disorderly conduct, interference
VALDOSTA, Ga. -- Los Angeles Lakers forward Kwame Brown was charged with disorderly conduct and interference with a law enforcement officer after an incident at 2 a.m. ET last Saturday, according to multiple media reports.
Brown was the passenger in a car driven by a 23-year-old Charles Edward Warren. He was detained because officers said he was out of control after they pulled over Warren for driving the wrong way on a one-way street. Police said Warren was driving drunk and with a suspended license.
"[Brown] would have been interfering with the investigation the officer was trying to conduct at that time," said Lt. Bobbi McGraw of the Valdosta Police.
Both men were released on bond.
Brown was with the Lakers at their media day on Monday. The Lakers expect him to be limited in camp, however, since he's coming off shoulder and ankle surgeries during the offseason.
