The back up point guard allegedly refused to stop for police then resisted arrest before finally being booked for what started out as a simple traffic infraction.
According to a police press release, Arroyo was driving slowly during rush hour traffic in the morning and when a motorcycle cop pulled up to his car, the NBA veteran kept driving. Police claim they made several attempts to stop Arroyo, but the player ignored them.
When he finally pulled over, Arroyo refused to get out of his car. He got out after back up arrived and then became "confrontational and challenging," which is kind of hard to believe for heat fans because Arroyo is the exact opposite on the court.
Team officials said they are aware of the incident but have not commented.
