It wasn’t exactly a warm welcome home for Los Angeles Lakers guard Alex Caruso when he returned to his alma mater, Texas A&M, earlier this week.

Per ESPN, while attempting to board a flight at Easterwood Airport in College Station, which is located on A&M property, a grinder and a small amount of cannabis were found in Caruso’s bags.

The Texas native was arrested by Texas A&M University Police for possession of marijuana (less than two ounces) and drug paraphernalia, according to the county’s jail records.

Caruso was released after paying a US$552 ($678) fine for the drug paraphernalia charge and posting a US$3,000 ($3,689) cash bond.

Reacting on Twitter, LeBron James, Caruso’s teammate, did not seem overly concerned about his arrest. Neither the Lakers nor the NBA has issued a statement about the charges.

Cannabis remains illegal in Texas, though enforcement varies in different jurisdictions. Under state law, possession of up to two ounces (57 grams) is a Class B misdemeanour, punishable by up to 180 days in prison, a fine of up to US$2,000 ($2,460), and a driver’s licence suspension, according to the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.
