While the Lakers sift through some largely underwhelming auditions for bench roles this training camp, one who cashed in as a Lakers reserve has his own problems.
DJ Mbenga, who won championship rings with the Lakers in 2009 and ’10, was arrested for public intoxication, according to WFAA.com in Dallas. While leaving a restaurant, Mbenga allegedly put his hand on a police officer and ordered him out of Mbenga’s way.
The document says Mbenga was attempting to exit the Buzzbrews Kitchen at 4 a.m. Tuesday as a pair of Dallas police officers were walking in. The 7-foot Center put his palm on one one’s chest and said, “You move out of my way.”
The officer stopped and responded, “You don’t touch police, let alone make that statement.” The incident report then says Mbenga said, “You want to go? I do what I want, so you move out of the way!”
Mbenga, a 7-footer, is native of the Congo who was a favorite of Lakers teammates for his big smile and gravely voice.

Considering its difficult to understand anything he says, I'm surprised the officer heard him so clearly lol
I'm sure they understood him fine, you know how difficult it is to understand the gibberish massacred English they speak in Texas?
