Samaki Walker arrested for possession of drugs, liquid steroids

Meanwhile, in Arizona:

Arizona authorities allege former NBA basketball player Samaki Walker tried to eat marijuana as a Department of Public Safety officer approached his 2002 Mercedes-Benz following a routine traffic stop in Kingman on Thursday.

Officials said about 10 grams of marijuana was seized from the vehicle along with some prescription drugs and eight bottles of liquid steroids.

Nothing's funny about a former Card arrested on drug charges, but eight bottles of liquid steroids, Samaki? Why on earth...

Police Sgt. Jamie Clark, the supervisor of a narcotics task force, said Walker was cooperative when interviewed by officers at the Mohave County Jail. He said Walker indicated that he uses the steroids to enhance his athletic ability as he still plays professionally in Syria.

Clark said Walker indicated the steroids are legal in Syria, though possession is a misdemeanor in Arizona.

Steroids are legal in Syria? Do NBA players who are about to be locked out know about this?  

Joking aside, this isn't a fun story and we hope that Samaki learns his lesson.
