College hoops star busted: Razorbacks guard arrested in late-night BMW stop

0 70

In the early hours of Saturday morning, a routine traffic stop turned into a high-profile arrest when police encountered a black BMW X5 with tinted windows double parked at the northwest corner of Nagle Avenue and West 204th Street in Inwood.

The vehicle, which drew attention from law enforcement shortly after 1:30 a.m., was found to be occupied by Jeremiah Davenport, 25, a prominent senior guard for the University of Arkansas’ Razorbacks, and an unnamed 24-year-old male.

As officers approached the car, they detected a strong odor of marijuana emanating from inside.

Davenport, who was behind the wheel, was unable to produce identification upon request. In a shocking turn, police discovered a firearm in plain sight behind the passenger seat.

Both men were promptly arrested at the scene. However, the second individual was released after the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office opted not to pursue charges against him.

Davenport, who holds a clean record with no prior convictions, now faces serious legal troubles.

He has been charged with criminal possession of a loaded firearm, unlawful possession of an ammunition feeding device, and violations related to the vehicle’s tinted windows.

Despite the gravity of the charges, Davenport was released on his own recognizance following his arraignment.

The incident casts a shadow over his promising basketball career and raises questions about the circumstances leading up to the late-night encounter with the law.
