BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -Former NBA star Isaiah Rider was in custody Sunday on outstanding arrest warrants after Berkeley police responded to a report of a disturbance between a taxi driver and a passenger.
Officers arrived on the scene to find the passenger was Rider. They arrested him on a no-bail warrant issued by Oakland police for unlawful firearm possession and another warrant for grand theft.
Berekeley police say the basketball player, who retired in 2002, is currently in custody at the city's jail.
The 36-year-old Rider has a history of arrests, including a 2006 Marin County case in which he pleaded guilty to false imprisonment and battery.
Rider starred at Alameda's Encinal High and UNLV before being drafted fifth overall in 1993 by the Minnesota Timberwolves.
