LOS ANGELES (AP) -Former NBA player Isaiah Rider was jailed Saturday for investigation of auto theft, police said.
The 37-year-old Rider was driving a car that failed to stop at an intersection about 2:30 a.m. in the city's Skid Row district, Officer Norma Eisenman said.
Officers checking the license plates discovered the car had been reported stolen from South Los Angeles, and Rider was arrested, police said.
He remained in the Los Angeles County jail on $25,000 bail, according to information on the Web site for the county Sheriff's Department.
Rider played at UNLV before reaching the NBA in 1993. He played with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Portland Trail Blazers, Atlanta Hawks, Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets before ending his career in 2001.
Rider had a string of arrests both during and after his career for drug use, assault and other crimes. He also racked up large fines and suspensions during his playing days for offenses that ranged from being tardy to practice to spitting at fans.
In January, Berkeley police answering a report of a confrontation between a taxi driver and a passenger arrested Rider on Oakland warrants alleging unlawful firearm possession and grand theft.
Last year, he pleaded guilty in Marin County to several charges, including felony cocaine possession, battery and evading a police officer.
Prior to sentencing, he told the court his life had spun out of control.
