Great. It's not a HUGE deal, but still something to keep an eye on. Also, I think this may be the first time a Bobcats player has been arrested.
Via NBC Philadelphia
Cunningham was pulled over by township police on the 100 block of East Lancaster Avenue for alleged speeding and reckless driving Friday, according to sources.
After Cunningham was pulled over, police found marijuana, a marijuana pipe and a loaded BB gun, sources say.
Sources tell NBC Philadelphia that Cunningham was driving a silver pickup truck with Oregon plates.
The exact charges against Cunningham are not yet known. Cunningham was released pending a hearing, sources say.

"...We are in the process of gathering more information and will have no further comment until the legal process has run its course."
