Indiana State Police said in a news release Tuesday morning that Rondo, 37, was driving a black 2022 Tesla that a trooper pulled over at about 1 p.m. Sunday after a caller reported the vehicle traveling recklessly on Interstate 65 southbound in Bartholomew County.

During the stop, the trooper smelled marijuana coming from the car and conducted a search. Marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a firearm were found in Rondo’s possession. According to the police, Rondo is “prohibited from possessing the firearm due to him having a protection order in place against him.”

A juvenile who was in the car was released to a family member, the department said in its release.

Rondo was arrested on misdemeanor charges of possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a firearm while being prohibited. He was taken to Jackson County jail and released upon paying a bond. A date will soon be set for an initial appearance in the Jackson County Superior Court, the police department said.

A four-time All-Star who played for nine teams during his 16-year career, Rondo helped the Los Angeles Lakers win the NBA title in 2020. Before that, he played for the Boston Celtics teams that beat the Lakers in the 2008 NBA Finals and lost to the Lakers in the 2010 Finals.

He also played for the Dallas Mavericks, Sacramento Kings, Chicago Bulls, New Orleans Pelicans, Atlanta Hawks, Los Angeles Clippers and Cleveland Cavaliers. His last season in the league was 2021-22.
