Delonte West faces arraignment on misdemeanor charges

NBA basketball

Former collegiate star and NBA guard Delonte West is expected to be arraigned Friday morning after his arrest in Fairfax County, Va., early Thursday on multiple misdemeanor charges, according to media reports.

Fairfax County police stated they were attempting to execute a warrant on West alleging violation of terms of his release when they saw him in Groveton, an unincorporated area southeast of Alexandria, Va., around 1 a.m. Thursday.

After losing sight of him briefly, police found him, but he reportedly was unresponsive. It took two doses of Narcan, a nasal spray that can reverse the effects of opioids in an overdose, before he was revived and taken to the county detention center, per the police.

West, 40, was charged with resisting arrest, police said.

West was previously arrested in 2022 on multiple charges alleging vehicle trespassing, fleeing from law enforcement and public drunkenness. He also has battled substance abuse issues and spoke openly about his diagnosis of bipolar disorder during his time in the NBA.

Behind West and backcourt mate Jameer Nelson, St. Joseph’s University went 30-2 in 2003-04 and advanced to the NCAA Tournament’s Elite Eight.

A first-round selection (24th overall) by the Boston Celtics in 2004, West played eight seasons in the NBA, for the Celtics, the Seattle SuperSonics, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Dallas Mavericks. He averaged 9.7 points, 3.6 assists and 44.8 percent shooting.
