Glen “Big Baby” Davis always stood out on an NBA court for his unique build and skill set as well as his emotional personality that always made him somewhat of a wildcard.
That sort of desire exhibited itself in a positive way in the late 2000s and early 2010s as Davis was a key role player in the Celtics most recent dynasty with Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen.
Davis struggled to catch on after leaving the Celtics though and has been out of the NBA for two years.
He was arrested over the weekend in Aberdeen Maryland for possession of 126 grams of marijuana and $96,000 in cash.
Here is from ABC 2 in Baltimore:
“According to court records, the hotel owner smelled marijuana coming from Davis’ room on February 7th. When the owner knocked on room 208, someone inside the room told him to “F*** off!”
Aberdeen police then responded to the hotel and Davis gave signed consent to search his room
“They recovered 126 grams of marijuana,” said Aberdeen Police Lieutenant William Reiber, “In addition to that there was a briefcase that contained 92,164 dollars of U.S. currency along with a ledger that contained language which is consistent with someone involved in the sale and distribution of narcotics.”
Davis and his lawyer claim his innocence and Davis even shared this bizarre video after the fact…

We’ll see what comes of this, but one thing is for certain, we probably won’t see “Big Baby” on an NBA court any time soon.
