It looks like Iman Shumpert’s high from the success of he and fiancée Teyana Taylor’s “Fade” music video has come tumbling down. The Cleveland Cavaliers player is making headlines this morning after news hit the Web about a recent arrest — pretty much for being faded (no pun intended).

HipHollywood can confirm that the athlete was taken into custody in metro Atlanta on August 11th for driving under the influence of alcohol.

According to the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, Shumpert was pulled over for a lane change violation. When pulled over, Shumpert told officials he was headed to the airport to pick up his father.

The NBA player and father of one was administered a field test and that’s when the deputy determined he was not able to operate the vehicle. Officials also searched Shumpert’s car, only to find what appeared to be weed in a backpack in the trunk.

Shumpert was taken into custody and charged with DUI less safe drugs.

The Cavaliers released a statement confirming that they’ve “discussed the situation with Iman and will monitor the progression of the pending case.”

The statement read, “A court date has not been set at this point, and neither Iman or the team will have any additional comments while the matter progresses through the legal process.”

Iman has not publicly responded to the reports.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
