SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Police say Phoenix Suns forward Clifford
Robinson told them he had smoked marijuana earlier in the evening
when he was arrested.
A police report released Tuesday said Robinson also
acknowledged having had a couple of beers when a police officer
asked whether he had been drinking.
Police said Robinson, who played a key role in the Suns' 97-80
victory over Chicago on Tuesday night, had been stopped early Monday
in this northeastern Phoenix suburb because he was speeding and was
weaving in and out of traffic lanes.
After police found a green leafy substance they believed to be
marijuana in the car's console, Robinson said that "earlier, I
smoked some weed," the report said.
Police said they also found more marijuana in a travel bag.
Robinson said he had packed the bag himself, but was not aware that
marijuana was inside. When police questioned that statement, the
report said, Robinson replied, "Well, if it was in the bag, it's
mine. I don't have a problem with that."
Robinson, 34, was cited for possession of marijuana and driving
under the influence. He was released about three hours later. Blood
test results are pending.
A friend riding with him, Darryl Bell, drove Robinson's car
after the arrest.
