Nick Young Arrested for Obstruction of Justice

Nick Young Arrested for Obstruction of Justice

National Basketball Association free agent guard Nick Young, who helped the Golden State Warriors win last season's title, was arrested at a Hollywood traffic stop Friday night, according to multiple reports Saturday.

One witness told TMZ Sports that Young, now 33 years of age, was taken out of his vehicle and ordered to stand against the wall, where he was cuffed.

Young, 33, reportedly did not cooperate with the officers who flagged him down and he was booked for obstruction of justice and had his auto impounded.

A spokesman for the department, Officer Mike Lopez, said that Young did not obey the officers, became upset and caused a delay.

Footage taken by local artist and musician Trappy Smoov shows the moment the professional athlete was placed into custody on what appears to be the famous Sunset Strip.

He now has a court date set for September 19.

Young remains a free agent this offseason.

This isn't the first time Young has had a run in with LAPD.

Young, who now is a free agent, averaged 7.3 points per game last season for the reigning champion Warriors.
