ATLANTA — Former University of Virginia basketball star and Chesapeake native Mike Scott faces up to 25 years in prison after a July drug arrest, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal Constitution. When Scott, who plays in the NBA for the Atlanta Hawks, and his younger brother were stopped on July 30, police found the drug MDMA and marijuana in their car, the report indicated.
Scott told police following his arrest that all the drugs in the vehicle belonged to him and the Hawks forward took responsibility for them. He was released on a bond of $8,100 following his arrest and videotaped interview conducted after his Miranda Warning.
Scott, 27, played basketball for the University of Virginia from 2007 to 2012. He finished his college career as one of the most prolific rebounders in school history.
