Former LSU star Glen 'Big Baby' Davis arrested for alleged drug distribution

On Saturday, Baltimore television station WMAR reported that former National Basketball Association forward Glen "Big Baby" Davis had been arrested last month after police found 126 grams of marijuana and $92,164 inside his hotel room.

Per WMAR, Davis was staying at a hotel in Aberdeen, Maryland when the hotel owner smelled marijuana coming from his room. When the owner knocked on the door, someone from inside the room told him to "F*@# off!". Police were then called and the former National Basketball Association champion gave his signed consent for the room to be searched.

Davis told police he was in Maryland visiting family.

10 years ago he was winning a championship with the Celtics as a key player and just 2 seasons ago he was still rumbling and stumbling around with the Clippers.

"They recovered 126 grams of marijuana", Aberdeen Police Lieutenant William Reiber was quoted as saying.

The ledger was of the names of people who owned money along with baggies for individual packaging of a quarter pound of marijuana. Kuebler also provided a video statement from police outlining the discoveries found by police upon searching a hotel room rented to Davis.

Davis' attorney said Davis adamantly maintains his innocence and looks forward to clearing his name in court. In a video that seems to have been recorded from an airplane, Davis sits next to a briefcase of cash, shows off his 2008 National Basketball Association championship ring, eats Popeye's and confidently proclaims, "I will have my day in court".
