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.
