Remember when Gilbert Arenas was considered one of the top guards in the NBA? Well, now it just seems like he’s nothing but the laughing stock of the league as he just always seems to be finding new ways to get into trouble.

The latest incident by Arenas–being arrested for carrying at least 20 boxes of illegal fireworks.

As if carrying these illegal fireworks wasn’t enough, Arenas was also cited for speeding as he was driving 80 MPH and didn’t even have a license on him. In other words, this is just the latest of idiotic acts performed by Arenas that could have easily been avoided.

One can only imagine what Arenas would need with that many boxes of fireworks, but it’s also interesting that there was enough concern to call the Los Angeles Department bomb squad in to help handle the situation. Even if the Fourth of July is right around the corner, there doesn’t seem like much of a reason for Arenas to carry around this large amount of fireworks if he wasn’t up to something shady such as selling them.

It’s a shame to see this happen to a guy like Arenas considering there was a time not too long ago when he was seen as one of the most exciting players to follow in the NBA. Clearly, that’s no longer the case as Arenas wasn’t even on a team last year and it will be interesting to hear the details that emerge from this case.
