Associated Press
PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland Trail Blazers forward Zach Randolph has been charged with driving under the influence of intoxicants after his arrest early Tuesday by a police officer who said he smelled marijuana in Randolph's car, authorities said.


Randolph was stopped about 2 a.m. in north Portland by an officer who "noted a strong odor of burning marijuana coming from the vehicle," said Sgt. Cheryl Robinson, a Portland Police Bureau spokeswoman.

Randolph was also cited for failure to drive within a lane, for not having an Oregon driver's license and for driving without insurance, Robinson said.

"Certainly if it turns out that the tests are not what we'd like to see, then, as I said, there will be consequences," team president Steve Patterson said.

Randolph was taken to the Multnomah County jail, where he was "very cooperative with our deputies, [saying] 'Yes sir, no sir,' " said Multnomah County sheriff's Lt. Mike Shults. "He went through it without any incident."

Randolph was released from jail at 5:13 a.m., Shults said.

The misdemeanor charge carries a potential sentence of up to one year in jail and up to a $5,000 fine, if convicted, Shults said.

Arraignment was set for Dec. 30 in Multnomah County Circuit Court.

Randolph, who became a starter this season, is averaging 20.7 points and 11.2 rebounds a game to lead the team.

The Blazers have been plagued by a series of arrests and infighting in the past few seasons. Most recently, Bonzi Wells was stripped of his co-captaincy and suspended for two games after cursing at coach Maurice Cheeks.

Wells was also fined by the team for making an obscene gesture at a fan at a home game against the Philadelphia 76ers early last month.

Player Damon Stoudamire, meanwhile, faces marijuana charges in Arizona following an offseason arrest at an airport. The Blazers initially suspended and fined Stoudamire, but he was later reinstated to the team after voluntarily undergoing treatment.

Last season, Stoudamire and Rasheed Wallace were both cited in Washington on marijuana charges. Both agreed to attend drug and alcohol counseling, and stay out of legal trouble for a court-specified period of time. Wallace also paid a $650 fine.

Also last season, Ruben Patterson's wife called 911 to report domestic abuse. Shannon Patterson later asked that the charges not be pursued by prosecutors.

Qyntel Woods was cited in late March for marijuana possession. He later pleaded innocent to the drug charges, but paid small fines for driving while uninsured and without a license.

Randolph was involved in a scuffle during practice late last season. He punched Patterson in the face, breaking his eye socket, and was suspended for two games by the team.

During the offseason, the Blazers made an effort to repair their tarnished image. They hired a new president, Steve Patterson, and a new general manager, John Nash, when Bob Whitsitt resigned.

Owner Paul Allen vowed that the Trail Blazers would be a team that Portland could be proud of. And the team released a 25-point pledge to fans that included a promise to hold players "accountable for their actions both on and off the court."


so much for their new policies making a difference.....the Blazers are the Raiders of the NBA.....
