Hot! NBA Star Zach Randolph Charged With Misdemeanor Marijuana Possession

Prosecutors have reduced felony drug charges against Sacramento Kings forward Zach Randolph, officially charging him with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and resisting arrest Thursday.

TMZ Sports reported the news. Randolph was initially arrested Aug. 9 and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, a felony. State laws dictate the charges based on the quantity of marijuana someone has on their person at the time of the arrest.

Randolph, 36, could still potentially face up to a year in jail if convicted on both counts. Odds are he will not face jail time as a first-time offender.

“The charges are false and misleading,” Randolph’s agent and attorney Raymond Brothers told the Associated Press (h/t ESPN.com). “We’re looking at all options to resolve this matter.”
