January 1, Arrested: Tragic Contrast from NBA Days, Fans Concerned



Former NBA guard Delonte West was recently arrested in Virginia. The 40-year-old faced charges for violating the terms of his release and resisting arrest in Fairfax County, as reported by Fox 5 DC.

Authorities informed TMZ Sports that West tried to escape from police officers. He was later found and given Narcan at a hospital. West was eventually released from the hospital and is currently being held on bond.

The released mugshot of West reveals a striking contrast from the NBA player fans remember. The Washington, D.C. native has been in the public eye, with fans expressing concern for his well-being since leaving the league after the 2011-12 season.

In January 2020, West was reportedly involved in a D.C. altercation, accusing a man of pulling a gun on him. Following this, fans and former players sought ways to help the ex-NBA player. Dallas Mavericks team owner Mark Cuban helped West enter a Florida rehab center in 2021.

In 2016, West was seen wandering around Houston without shoes and involved in altercations outside a strip club and a youth basketball game. That same year, he was seen walking down a Maryland street, sparking concerns about homelessness. While West denied being homeless and claimed he was doing fine, his brother revealed in 2016 that Delonte suffers from bipolar disorder.

West was a star guard at St. Joseph’s University before being selected by the Boston Celtics as the No. 24 pick in the 2004 NBA Draft. He also played for the Seattle Supersonics, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Dallas Mavericks.
