Former NBA Rookie of the Year and three-time All-Star Steve Francis has been spending a lot of time with the police this season. And not in a good way.
He was arrested recently for a DWI and marijuana possession in Houston. At the time, police in Manatee, Florida, wanted to talk to Francis about a car burglary back in June — one where Francis already turned himself in. At the time Francis broke into a car outside a bar and restaurant, taking a wallet, gold jewelry, cash and more. A couple of days later, Francis turned himself and the goods in, the police filed a report, but did not arrest him at the time.
As we previously reported, the ex-NBA star was wanted by cops in Manatee, Florida after he allegedly ransacked a stranger’s car back in June and stole over $7k in stuff….
According to jail records, Francis turned himself in early Monday on a burglary of an unoccupied conveyance charge — a 3rd degree felony that carries up to 5 years in prison. His bond is set at $1,500.
Francis played in just more than eight NBA season and earned more than $103 million in salary in that time.
