Former NBA Player Latrell Sprewell Arrested For Loud Music

Sometimes the party gets loud – loud enough to get Latrell Sprewell arrested.

The former NBA baller was arrested on New Years Eve for bumping his music too loud, at a time when most people were still getting dressed. Latrell Sprewell was arrested at 4PM at his home in Milwaukee, hours before the ball dropped on 2012.

The 13-year veteran was arrested after “repeated complaints about loud music coming from a house on E. Pleasant St. on Milwaukee’s east side,” according to local reports. The 42-year-old Sprewell was booked into jail at 4:15 PM, which means his party was already jumping before the sun had set.

This is far from the first time we’ve seen Latrell Sprewell arrested. The former Warriors, Knicks and Timberwolves player had tax problems in 2008, and is best known for an ugly incident in which he coked former coach P.J. Carlesimo while playing for Golden State. He was suspended for that, but seeing Latrell Sprewell arrested for something as innocuous as loud music pales in comparison to, say, throttling a head coach.
