Marcus Camby: Weed Charges Against NBA Player Dropped
Marcus Camby, the NBA player who was charged with marijuana possession in Pearland last month, has had those charges dropped.
Randall Novak, his attorney, tells Hair Balls Camby's second cousin, Kendall Johnson, entered a guilty plea to the possession and paid a $1,500 fine.
Johnson was visiting from Connecticut, which recently decriminalized possession of small amounts of pot; obviously he probably shouldn't have assumed Texas was as liberal in their attitude towards the demon weed.
Novak says several aspects of the initial report of Camby's September 22 were inaccurate.

The arrest came at noon, not midnight, he says, and Camby was pulled over for having windows that were too tinted.
The arrest came just a few blocks from Camby's house in Pearland, Novak said.
