Three people, including Randolph, were arrested.
Officers were called to a housing project for reports of a large crowd of people in the street smoking and playing loud music.
According to published reports, Randolph was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to sell after he was detained with two other people as part of a rowdy scene that resulted in six police cars being vandalized. It's unclear if he was still in custody Thursday morning. Another man, 43-year-old Stanley Walton, was also arrested on suspicion of being an ex-convict in possession of a gun, Madison added. Police were eventually able to disperse the crowd. When officers responded, a mob formed and began to destroy police cruisers and throw objects at officers, prompting them to call for backup, police said.
Police recovered two guns, impounded two vehicles and seized narcotics during the incident, police said.
His agent and attorney Raymond Brothers claimed that the charges are false and misleading and that they are looking at viable options to handle the matter.
Randolph, a 16-year National Basketball Association veteran and two-time All-Star, was first drafted by the Trailblazers in the first-round of the 2001 National Basketball Association draft.
