Did Darius Miles' Outrageous Ride Lead to Pot Bust?
The 27-year-old Miles was alone in his vehicle last night when he was pulled over for allegedly failing to use a turn signal. Miles, who played basketball for East St. Louis High School before being drafted into the NBA, was ticketed for driving with a suspended license.
After the car was towed, police say a search of it uncovered a misdemeanor amount of marijuana in a bag. Miles finished last season with the NBA's Memphis Grizzlies.
Hmm, I wonder if Miles' outrageous taste in cars had anything to do with him being pulled over?
Here is one of Miles' rides designed by auto shop Big Wheels in Ocala, Florida.
