Cavaliers guard Kevin Porter Jr. has gun and weed charges stemming from a November car accident dropped. The gun charge was a felony that carried possible prison time.
Porter's attorney says the case went to the grand jury, but they declined to indict him on the gun charge.
From TMZ Sports:
Cops responded to the scene and found a loaded handgun along with what appeared to be weed inside the vehicle ... but the officers did NOT believe Porter was under the influence.
Porter was arrested and charged with improper handling of a firearm, marijuana possession and more ... but pled not guilty to the misdemeanor charges but entered no plea on the felony gun charge.
The case went to a grand jury -- which ultimately declined to indict the NBA player on the gun charge, his attorney Alex Spiro tells ESPN. It's a big deal considering the felony charge carries possible prison time if convicted.
Two misdemeanors were also dropped -- weed possession and driving without a license.
That's great news for Porter as he continues to get his NBA career off the ground. Hopefully he learned a valuable lesson here.
Considering nothing is going to happen to Porter, I'm going to guess he didn't, but he might want to reconsider driving around with his guns and weed.
