According to The Boston Globe, Kendrick Perkins was arrested this morning at 4:17 am in Beaumont, Texas for public intoxication and disorderly conduct. He was released 4 minutes later.
As mentioned earlier this week, Perkins had invited Rajon Rondo, Stephen Jackson, and a few of his Oklahoma City Thunder teammates to Beaumont for his youth basketball camp, which ended Friday. An exhibition game was supposed to take place at the end of the camp, but it was cancelled due to Perkins becoming sick. Evidently, he wasn't too ill to cause some trouble. TMZ reports that Jackson was also arrested along with Perkins, but it doesn't look as though Rondo was involved.
Former Celtics center Kendrick Perkins was arrested early this morning on charges of public drinking and disorderly conduct in his hometown of Beaumont, according to Texas authorities.
Perkins, 26, was taken to Jefferson County Correctional Facility at 4:17 a.m. and released four minutes later, according to a jail official who declined to identify herself.
Perkins, who now plays for the Oklahoma City Thunder, posted $150 for each charge, jail officials said.
Updated: A report from Media Take Out gives some more details about the incident, citing Rondo's involvement and making it sound a lot more drastic than the Globe's brief article.
