According to TMZ, Jami Thomas, 18, was arrested alongside Telfair in Brooklyn, New York. It’s unclear what the arsenal was meant to be used for, but Pix 11 reporter Myles Miller tweeted a photo of the artillery that was confiscated by law enforcement.

Before Telfair, 32, played overseas in China, he was a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Cleveland Cavaliers, L.A. Clippers and Boston Celtics.

Details are still forthcoming.
