A college b-ball player arrived in the Big Apple for the NBA Draft with hopes of his own big-league dreams and instead found himself in big league trouble when he discovered New York City doesn’t play by the same rules as Arkansas in the gun game.

The New York Post reports that Jeremiah Davenport, 25, a graduate senior guard for the University of Arkansas Razorbacks, and another man, 24, were arrested after police approached the vehicle, which was double parked in the Washington Heights section of the city, early Saturday morning. The officers observed marijuana smoke escaping the windows of the vehicle and upon walking up to the car and asking Davenport for identification, which he couldn’t produce, they also observed a loaded firearm lying in plain sight behind the passenger seat.

Both men were arrested, but the other was later released.

The NY Post reports:

Davenport was slapped with charges including criminal possession of a loaded firearm, unlawful possession of an ammo feed device and tinted windows, cops said.  

He appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court Saturday, sporting a dark orange sweater with the phrase “selfish ways” written on it. 

He either ignored multiple laws because he thinks he’s above them, which makes the message on his hoodie totally appropriate or the sweatshirt should read “stupid ways.” Anybody who knows anything about guns and New York City, knows the former isn’t allowed in the latter, carried on your person or in the open without proper permitting, which few people will ever get there.

Davenport has no prior convictions and declined to comment as he left court on his own recognizance. His public defender told the judge “there were serious search issues,” the NY Post reported, but apparently didn’t deny any of the evidence that was discovered.

    • I am more struck by the stupidity involved at all levels with that interaction. But not everyone can grasp only breaking one law at a time. This will likely be plead out but would be a interesting permit challenge.

            • jw…Gun Control is Rooted in Racism and Genocide.

              On the other hand he should have told the cops he was on his way to throw the gun in a dumpster because that’s what the son of joe biden did and by golly if hunter biden can do it so can he…case closed.

          • Smoking weed and/or domestic violence plus having an arrest record are almost a prerequisite to play in the NBA nowadays.

      • Start by evaluating your skills, hobbies, and interests. Determine what you’re passionate about or what skills you possess that can be monetized.

      • Some people don’t do things by half measures and demand attention to get their “cred”.

        The double parking was certainly attention getting, but not in a way he expected.

        I find it amusing, and sometimes tragic, how many people get caught in impulsive ways.

  1. This sounds like the perfect case to take all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court to abolish license/permit prerequisites to possess firearms.

  2. Well that’s too bad. It’s not like those guys were hurting anyone.
    I wonder what license plates were on the car?
    Can someone direct me to Freedom in America, I’m having difficulty finding it.

  3. “Jeremiah Davenport, 25, and another man, 24, were arrested after police approached the vehicle, which was double parked in the Washington Heights section of the city, early Saturday morning”.

    Somebody was trying to score, there’s a third party who scooted when the cops pulled up.

  4. Stupid person playing stupid game winning stupid prizes and I don’t mean basketball. Whether you agree with New York’s firearms laws or not. Just like going into into a communist country and flaunting their laws bad things can happen to you. Just ask Britney Griner. Bad consequences come from bad choices…He chose poorly.

  5. Well that one Officer of the Laws bullet proof vest certainly fits him well. Is that the new strapless bra version?

  6. Double parked? Lol

    The fact a “NBA Hopeful In NYC for the Draft…” is the target means nothing.

    What means something is that we are reading about people that simply don’t know any better or maybe don’t care. Sooner or later they will cross paths with law enforcement. Just like George Floyd.

  7. He’s 25? That’s seems a bit old for 1st time draft. As the Turks & Cacaos bullet simpletons who brought boo-lits to a prohibited place know where you’re going!!!

    • He was probably held back several times before DEI mandates allowed simpletons to go further than they ordinarily would.

  8. A loaded? weapon in open sight on the passenger seat? Have to ask the obvious question of why?
    At 25 the dumbarse should have a bit more sense than to be toking up and having a weapon on display while in an unfamiliar city as well as being double parked etc.
    Yes, even though it would be illegal for me to do so, I would have a sidearm available should I have need to visit NYC. Same as I do when I have to visit Atlanta, or New Orleans. However, as I do when visiting those places, or even going into more populated areas around here, concealed means concealed and few if any people will notice or see my weapons. Few if any people notice my knife or IFAK either.
