The Lakers were bounced from the playoffs early this year because they're bubble fraud champs that couldn't hang this season.  But that didn't keep them from making headlines during a playoff game.

On Tuesday bench star Alex Caruso was arrested by Texas A&M University Police for marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession.  This is how you get your free agency started.

From FOX11:

Los Angeles Lakers guard Alex Caruso was briefly behind bars in Texas after he was suspected of possessing marijuana.

According to the Brazos County Sheriff's Office, Caruso was charged with possession of marijuana of under two ounces and possession of drug paraphernalia. The 27-year-old was arrested by Texas A&M University Police and was booked Tuesday, according to jail records.

Caruso is that almost 30-year-old guy hanging out on a college campus with his hacky sack and weed.  I hate to say he looks exactly like that guy, but he definitely does.
