Great. It's not a HUGE deal, but still something to keep an eye on. Also, I think this may be the first time a Bobcats player has been arrested.

Dante Cunningham, former Villanova basketball star and current NBA player for the Charlotte Bobcats, was arrested in Radnor Township Friday, sources tell NBC Philadelphia.

Cunningham was pulled over by township police on the 100 block of East Lancaster Avenue for alleged speeding and reckless driving Friday, according to sources.

After Cunningham was pulled over, police found marijuana, a marijuana pipe and a loaded BB gun, sources say.

Sources tell NBC Philadelphia that Cunningham was driving a silver pickup truck with Oregon plates.

The exact charges against Cunningham are not yet known. Cunningham was released pending a hearing, sources say.
