Valdosta - An NBA player was arrested in Valdosta over the weekend.  Twenty-five-year-old Kwame Brown, a power forward with the LA Lakers is charged with disorderly conduct and interference of a law enforcement officer.

Police say Brown was the passenger in a car driven by 23-year-old Charles Edward Warren, Junior.

They were pulled over at the intersection of East Hill Avenue and North Patterson Street around 2:00 Saturday morning.

Warren was driving the wrong way down a one way street.  Investigators say Warren was drunk and driving on a suspended license.

They say Brown was arrested when he got out of control during the investigation.  "He would have been interfering with the investigation the officer was trying to conduct at that time," says Lt. Bobbi McGraw with the Valdosta Police.

Both Brown and Warren are originally from Brunswick.  They are out on bond.

A spokesperson for the Lakers say Brown showed up on time for their media day this morning and no punishment has been handed down from team officials.
