Former NBA player Glen "Big Baby" Davis, who won a title with the Boston Celtics in 2008, was arrested in a Maryland hotel last month on drug possession and distribution charges.

WMAR-TV in Baltimore reports that Davis was arrested at a Hampton Inn in Aberdeen on February 7.

According to court records, the hotel owner smelled marijuana coming from Davis' room.

Aberdeen police Lt. William Reiber told WMAR that police found 126 grams of marijuana and a briefcase containing $92,000 in cash inside Davis' room.

The police also found a ledger from his possession that contained language which is consistent with someone involved in the sale and distribution of narcotics.

The ledger consisted of names of people who owed money along with small plastic bags for packaging a quarter pound of marijuana.

Davis was arrested and later indicted on seven counts of drug possession and distribution. His attorney told WMAR that Davis looks forward to his day in court to clear his name.

The former NBA star told police he was in Harford County, Maryland visiting family.

"There was a statement that was made about the purpose of the trip but at the end of the day we don't know exactly,” said Aberdeen Police Lieutenant Lt. Reiber. “There was an investigation, it is still on-going. It is still making its way through the justice system.”

Davis, a star player at LSU, went on to play for the Boston Celtics, Orlando Magic and LA Clippers.

The 32-year-old Davis most recently played for the Los Angeles Clippers in the 2014-15 season. He put his basketball career “on hold” in 2016 to venture into film production.

Davis is due back in court on April 2, according to WMAR.
