One of the Brooklyn Nets’ newest additions has found himself in trouble with the law, as big man Kenneth Faried was arrested over the weekend on drug-related charges.

According to a report from TMZ, Faried was found to be in possession of more than two ounces of marijuana when he was stopped at a sobriety checkpoint on Sunday. A spokesperson for Southampton Town Police Dept. in New York said the officer at the scene observed that a “strong odor of marijuana was emanating from the inside of the vehicle.” Faried was arrested for a misdemeanor of fourth-degree unlawful possession of marijuana, while the two other people in his vehicle received citations.

As TMZ notes, Faried could face up to a year in jail if he’s convicted.

Faried, who spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Denver Nuggets, was traded to the Nets last month as part of a deal for Isaiah Whitehead. The 28-year-old had previously spoken about how he enjoyed being the subject of trade rumors.
