Daily News: Neither Kwame Brown nor the Lakers wished to talk about his arrest on misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and interfering with a police officer over the weekend in Valdosta, Ga.
But they did so anyway after a bit of prompting Wednesday.
Brown was involved in an incident in which his cousin, Charles Warren Jr., was charged with DUI. The 6-foot-11, 270-pound Brown was disruptive and tried to interfere with the arrest, police said.
The Lakers were made aware of the situation when Brown informed Coach Phil Jackson on Tuesday.
“We want to get the full report,” Jackson said. “Kwame came to me yesterday and apologized. It’s a misdemeanor. It’s not against our club’s rules what he did.”
That’s not to say the Lakers are willing to forgive and forget the incident. After all, this isn’t the first time Brown has been in trouble since joining the Lakers in a trade from the Washington Wizards in August 2005.
After all, there was the cake caper of last January, when Brown was accused of snatching a $190 birthday cake out of the arms of a South Bay man and then turning and throwing it at him after a night of celebrating at a Hermosa Beach nightclub.
The cake case was tossed out of court.
