Bull Prince Arrested on Fugitive Warrant for Drug Possession in Miami


According to Chris Hines of The Star Tribune, Minnesota Timberwolves attacker Taurean Prince was arrested Thursday at Miami International Airport under an out-of-state order fugitive from Texas.

A Maimi-Dade Police Department spokesman said Friday the charges were “dangerous drugs” from a Tarrant County, Texas warrant, detaining Fort Worth and several other Dallas suburbs, according to NBC News.

According to Eric Chaloux of KSTP, police said in May they found guns, a vape pen with THC oil and a “can of marijuana” in Prince’s car.

Arlington Police said they arrested Prince for driving with an expired license plate on his vehicle.

Tests on the vape pen have recently returned, leading to the injunction.

Police said they have only charged Prince with carrying a gun because of the illegal substances, because “it is illegal to carry a gun during a criminal offense” in Texas.

Prince was admitted to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.

He was given a $2,500 bail on Friday morning.

In response to the arrest, the Timberwolves released the following statement:

Prince is from San Antonio and attended Baylor University in Waco, Texas.

Prince joined Minnesota last offseason after a series of trades took him from the Brooklyn Nets to the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Timberwolves in seven months.

The 28-year-old signed a $16 million two-year contract extension with the team earlier this offseason.
