Sgt. Rob Huss stopped the car for going 84 mph in a 70 mph zone, Butler said. Huss smelled marijuana and seized less than 40 grams of the drug, according to Butler. After the tickets were issued, the three men continued on their way.
The players were returning to Portland after the Trail Blazers beat the Seattle SuperSonics 89-85 Thursday night in Seattle. Wallace scored 13 points. Stoudamire did not play.
In February, police entered Stoudamire's home and said they found a pound of marijuana. In May, Stoudamire and his father were charged with marijuana possession in Oregon.
