Steve Francis arrested at L.A. airport
LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles International Airport police say three-time NBA All-Star Steve Francis has been arrested for alleged public drunkenness.
Airport spokesman Albert Rodriguez says Francis was arrested at 11:30 p.m. Thursday because he was intoxicated, unable to care for himself and combative toward staff. Sgt. Belinda Nettles says the arrest took place in the Terminal 7 lobby near the United Airlines ticketing counter.
Los Angeles Sheriff's Department records show Francis posted $10,000 bail and was released about 3:30 a.m. Friday. He is to appear in court Nov. 5.
He was an All-Star in 2002, 2003 and 2004, all as a Rocket. He was waived by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2009.
