LAS VEGAS (AP) - Former UNLV basketball standout Patrick Savoy has been arrested on suspicion of trafficking cocaine after an undercover operation in Las Vegas.
Police say the 40-year-old was arrested without incident during a traffic stop Wednesday. He had left the Clark County Detention Center by Thursday afternoon.
A police report says an undercover detective met up with Savoy at the Terrible's Hotel & Casino on May 28 and bought $300 worth of cocaine from him.
Prosecutors say the case is still under investigation and formal charges haven't been filed.
The 6-foot-9-inch Savoy played for the Runnin' Rebels from 1993 to 1995 and is ranked No. 81 on the Las Vegas Review-Journal's top 100 basketball players in UNLV history.
There was no answer Thursday at a number listed as Savoy's home phone.
