Jeff Adrien‘s name is more recognizable than it has been his entire NBA career. Adrien, who averaged 4.6 points and 4.3 rebounds throughout his career, was arrested in Los Angeles this week for stealing a Mercedes from a valet stand, according to TMZ Sports.
Law enforcement says that Adrien, 29, was waiting outside of a West Hollywood hotel before jacking the Mercedes. He then decided to go on a six-hour joyride before returning it to the hotel, where someone figured out what went down and notified the authorities. The actual owner of the Mercedes got his car returned with minor damage and the smell of weed.
As a result, Adrien was arrested for grand theft auto and later left jail through a $25,000 bail. He played for the Timberwolves just last year, and it’s possible that an NBA team won’t take another shot at signing him after this bizarre stunt.
