Miami Beach police say a New York Knicks player has been arrested on a bench warrant for not having a valid driver’s license.
Sgt. Bobby Hernandez says 26-year-old J.R. Smith was stopped Thursday night on Washington Avenue in South Beach. A routine search revealed the bench warrant and he was arrested.
Details were not immediately available on what led police to stop Smith around 8:30 p.m.
Hernandez says Smith was taken to the Miami-Dade County jail, where officials say he bonded out early Friday.
No attorney was listed on jail records for Smith, whose legal name is Earl Joseph Smith.
