According to the New York Police Department, police observed a 2016 Mercedes-Benz sedan make an illegal U-turn in the borough of Queens just before 3 a.m. local time Thursday. Police stopped the vehicle and the operator, identified as Gibson, produced an Illinois driver’s license that a computer check determined to be suspended.
Gibson, 32, was arrested at the scene, transported to a nearby precinct and charged with aggravated unlicensed operator and a traffic moving violation for the illegal U-turn. He was ordered to appear in court on Sept. 1 and released from the station house about 90 minutes later.
Gibson is a Brooklyn native who often spends much of his off-season in New York.
Minnesota signed Gibson, long a Tom Thibodeau favorite, this summer as part of a revamping of that roster. He will formally sign his two-year, $28 million contract this summer and be introduced to the media on Monday.
