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.

    For realz. We can all live with him mouthing off to some cops, but sitting on his butt every summer and stinking it up each season is unforgivable.

  • ab4sure

    Let us hope that Kwame could do both….like not breaking the law(hopefully he didn’t) and working out during the summer. Kwame, can u do just those two things??? And not because this is your contract year.

    Kwame no appology was needed. Buss drove drunk down the wrong side of the street too. Just tell him you were following his example!!!!

  • Tim-4-Show


    Excellent point. We’re all professionals here.. and by professional I mean druken party-goers who like to drive drunk and throw cakes.

    Kwame felt a need to apologize. If it makes him a better player, to catch the ball, make free throws, and “Dunk the Dam ball” Then let him apologize.

    Now Dr Buss driving drunk, that’s a different story. If it sobers him up to make him a better owner, then it will become a good thing.

    normally i would say trade him
    but i think that is better to have him this season and next summer use his 9 million contract to sign a good free agent
