NBA Star Nick Young Turns A Simple Traffic Stop Into An Arrest

Nick Young didn't cooperate with police and became upset so he was arrested and his car was impounded

Hollywood, CA NBA player Nick Young was arrested Friday night after an incident during a traffic stop with police.

TMZ reported that Young, known by his nickname Swaggy P, refused to cooperate with police officers on the scene.

Police took Young out of his car and ordered him against a wall and then handcuffed him and took Young into custody, according to TMZ. The car was impounded.

In the video obtained by TMZ that was taken by witnesses, Young can be heard yelling, "Am I resisting?"

KCBS-TV reported that Young was pulled over for an expired vehicle registration and an illegal window tint.

Los Angeles Police Department Spokesman Officer Mike Lopez told the Associated Press that Young didnt obey officers and became upset and caused a delay, according to ESPN.

Young, 33, was arrested for obstruction of justice, according to TMZ. He was released on a $10,000 bail about four hours after he was arrested, according to ESPN.

Young made $5.1 million last year while playing with the NBA champion Golden State Warriors. He is currently an unsigned free agent.

Young had another run-in with police while driving in 2016.

He was pulled over in Hollywood because he was playing his music too loud in a rental car that didnt have license plates, according to TMZ.

Young was cited for playing his music too loud and then claimed police took a cheap shot at him for playing for the Lakers, who finished 17-65 that year.

"After everything was over one of them (police) going to say (y'all suck) so I replied back like it ain't lookin to good for y'all neither, Young said, according to TMZ.

That same year, Young was involved with an incident with teammate DAngelo Russell, a rookie. Russell had secretly recorded Young in a private conversation.

At the time, Young was engaged to rapper Iggy Azalea. Russell asked Young about being with women other than Azalea, according to ESPN. Then the video was leaked to the internet.

Then Azalea responded to the video on her Twitter account. Azalea tweeted, "hmmm i see D Angelo Russell is trending... I actually liked his film. Thanks bro," according to ESPN.

You throw temper tantrums like a two-year old you are going to be treated like a two-year old regardless of the color of your skin. If it's more blacks getting arrested over incidents like this then it's because it's more blacks doing it.So simple even a two-year old can understand.

Well I see that he is educated, and is capable of using the word (n****r) as every other word in his vocabulary. He wanted to be arrested, just shows how ignorant he is! Fire the boy!

You can take the thug out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of the thug.

Throw the race card. Blame the officers. Prosecutor will drop charges. Officers suspended or fired. Traffic stop policy to be reviewed and revised. City will apologize and gave a big payoff.

Hi/Lowest Condom- Can you please consolidate all your written diarrhea into just one meaningless commentary vs. six separate meaningless commentaries? The six below were all one right after the other. Either that or please get some Kayopectate as your making a mess over yourself.

Hi_estComnDenomn 2 days @Hi_estComnDenomnn he's a winner alright, but definitely not wight.

Hi_estComnDenomnn Hi_estComnDenomnn 2 days Obama

Hi_estComnDenomn Hi_estComnDenomn 2 days @Hi_estComnDenomnn "good" wights also love mass shootings. i guess all of you people can't be winners, right?

Hi_estComnDenomnn Hi_estComnDenomnn 2 days Good whites don't claim liberals.

Hi_estComnDenomnn Hi_estComnDenomnn 2 days Nevermind forget I said that. I'm not on my meds again. By meds I mean vaporizing nicotine and marijuana and shoving them up my bum bum.

Hi_estComnDenomn Hi_estComnDenomn 2 days fair. and the one phrase for the whites in this country to learn is "just because you don't win, doesn't mean you should commit a mass shooting."

"Hi-est Condom" seems intent on arguing with others vs. adding something poignant to any conversation. At times I and others make a comment just to add levity to a never ending stream of troubling stories. Other times I strive to add information which further explores the issues being discussed to create more discussion and thought. The majority here are mature and avoid starting arguments and for that I commend you..... But here we obviously have a frustrated child who responds in an ignorant and juvenile manner to discussions regarding the hugely disproportionate amount of crime and troubling behaviors that continually perpetuates a dysfunctional minority community. Instead of providing meaningful comments he instead attempts to try to be a pest. He feels the need to confront the originator and in his mind, get back and "show Whitey". Apparently he does not realize that he has himself become a "poster child" for what is wrong in his own community. I will choose to ignore the ignorant attempts to argue by this person . I suggest you consider the same.

@THEDUKE you write way too many words for this crowd. Easy there, Hemingway.

Second, we're you able to find someone much younger than you to explain that not everything you see on the Internet is true? Like believing that two commenters who read nothing alike on these chat boards and whose names are spelled differently aren't the same person?

LowEST IQ says "you write way too many words for this crowd. Easy there"

Ok, no problem ...I will slow it down and make it easy for you --

I'd like a Whopper (no onions )..., a small order of fries ..... A large Coke and a vanilla ice cream.

Thank you
