Basketball player arrested for gun charges in Raleigh

Law enforcement authorities reportedly arrested a NC State University basketball player on Jan. 5 around 1 a.m. The player, who is a guard on the men's team, was charged in connection to an incident in which a car was struck by pellets.

According to reports, the incident occurred in the 7700 block of Crocker Drive. The player, who had transferred to NC State from West Virginia, was charged and arrested along with another man whom police allege also participated.

Officers claim the two men shot a pellet gun at a vehicle in which another person who was known to them was located. The vehicle reportedly sustained damage from the pellets. The basketball player was charged with discharging a firearm and carrying a concealed weapon, and the other man was charged with discharging a firearm and causing injury to personal property in the incident. The school indicated the basketball player had reported his arrest to them. The school is awaiting the results of the court proceedings in relation to the young man's case.

College students who are charged with committing crimes may be forced out of school, lose scholarships or the ability to represent their college on athletics teams. In addition to facing potential criminal penalties, including such things as a jail or prison sentence and fines, the person who is charged may endure collateral consequences for having the conviction long after it occurs. Those with a criminal record often have difficulty with finding jobs, housing and employment. People who are charged with crimes may want to get the help of an attorney in mounting a criminal defense to the charges. In some cases, even when the facts seem hopeless, a criminal defense attorney may be able to locate witnesses and identify defenses that others do not immediately recognize.
