ST. LOUIS (AP)—Memphis Grizzlies forward Darius Miles(notes), who was suspended last season for violating the NBA’s anti-drug program, was free on bond Thursday after being charged with possession of marijuana.

The 27-year-old Miles was alone in his car in suburban Fairview Heights, Ill., Wednesday night when an officer pulled him over for allegedly failing to use a turn signal, police Sgt. Steve Evans said. During a search of the car, Evans said police found a small amount of marijuana in a plastic bag in the passenger compartment.

Miles was ticketed for driving with a suspended license and charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession because the amount of the drug was less than 2.5 grams, which would have been a felony. He was later freed on $100 bond.

A message was left Thursday by The Associated Press with a woman who answered a Belleville phone listed under Miles’ name. It was not immediately clear if Miles had an attorney. A call to a number for an agent who has represented Miles when unanswered.

Miles was playing for Boston when he was suspended without pay for 10 games last season for violating terms of the league’s anti-drug program at the end of the 2007-08 season.

Classy.

In all fairness, he did get pulled over for failing to use a turn signal. How many cops would actually pull you over for that? He probably just got pulled over cuz he was a black guy driving a nice car. Also, why did the officer feel it was necessary to search his car??

In all fairness to the police officers, Darius Miles forgot to use a turn signal while driving with a suspended license while carrying marijuana. That's grade A ********.

Some how I doubt that excuse. I'm pretty sure he has dark limo tint on his car. It said it was at night so there is no way you could see inside his car. I would guess the cop could smell it as soon as Miles rolled down the window. Hot boxed Cheech and Chong style

I'm not trying to make excuses for him. What he did was pretty dumb, especially if the car smelled like weed, but getting pulled over for failing to use a turn signal? I feel like there must have been more to it than that. How many times a day do you make turns without using a turn signal and think nothing of it...

first off.... of course darius miles smokes weed. hes young rich and plays a game for a living, the dude has time to kill,money to spend and drugs to do.

secondly, if no one is shocked, and the law isnt shocked why does anyone care? hell get a slap on the wrist(prolly for like the 50th time) and be on his way no big deal.

and on a final note, he was obviously smoking while driving, or the cop knew in some other way... its rare you hear of someone getting pulled over for failing to use a turn signal... so yeah dumbass

Darius has got to get his act together, but i dont blame him for smokin weed.

Deaths caused by alcohol in U.S last year: 75,000+

Deaths caused by weed use in U.S last year: 0.

look it up, no one in the history of mankind has ever overdosed on weed.

its funny, if alcohol were a drug, it would be the worst drug ever.

you need to take a lot to feel ****ed up and when u have enough u lose ur ability to speak, control your body, ability to make good judgment, and eventually u either pass out, or if u drink too much u could die.... yeah sounds great.

whens the last time you ever heard of someone smokin a joint and beating their wife from rage? nah, never happens, its all alcohol man.

all ur gonna do if u smoke weed is lay back, relax, feel good, and maybe get hungry.

ur not gonna kill anyone in a car accident or get all amped up on booze.

if Barack did it, it can't be that bad folks... u gotta decide for urself.

I'm sorry but I don't trust any movie from the 1930's about marijuana because they did not know anything about marijuana. Most of it was the government lying to the public and the rest was speculation on what marijuana can do to you. I'm not advocating the use of marijuana in any way but don't trust a 1930's movie. It's Hollywood, they like to make it look like worse than it actually is. And another thing it was financed by a church, who I'm pretty sure wouldn't want marijuana legal. Back then marijuana was referred to and labeled as the "negro" drug. Saying that only black people used it, and that if a white male of female used it was because a black demon corrupted their soul and other stupid stuff like that. In one report from the that time it said that use of marijuana will make a white woman more sexually attractive to black people and less intelligent too.
Sorry to off topic here. :p Darius Miles has messed up so many times. Yeah the cop was kind of a "dicc" to stop Miles for failing to put his turn signal, but then it's illegal.

While I am totally on your side of the argument, the alcohol deaths likely include driving, etc. There were deaths last year from marijuana use, not an overdose, but lung/throat cancer, emphysema, and I'm sure a few driving incidents also.

I think his point was to watch that movie purely FOR the schock value and to give a good example of the point you are making. If you watch it, you will see how ridiculous it was.

As for Darius, that is just being stupid. Sorry, but if you can't give it up for the chance to make millions of dollars, you are a moron

besides why was this cop searching his car... unless when he rolled his window down a bunch of smoke rolled out... i would consider that probably cause

Is he the same guy that got arrested a few years ago for trying to take pot onto a plane? Guy doesn't seem like he learns from his mistakes at all. And while it is unusual to get pulled over for failing to signal, if it is a slow day, a cop will look for any reason to stop drivers. I've gotten pulled over for having an expired inspection sticker.
While I realize that pot isn't a horrible drug, I'd prefer that people smoking it not be driving a car. And why does he have a suspended license?
