Ex-NBA Player Rider Arrested In LA

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Former NBA player Isaiah Rider has been
arrested on skid row in Los Angeles for allegedly driving a stolen
car.

Police say the 37-year-old ex-Laker was seen failing to stop at a limit line around 2:30 this morning. When officers pulled over the car, they found it had been reported stolen from South Los Angeles.

Rider was booked for investigation of driving a car without the owner's consent. He's jailed on $25,000 bail.

Rider played at UNLV before starting his pro career in 1993. He played with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Portland Trail Blazers, Atlanta Hawks, Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets before ending
his career in 2001.

But Rider had a string of arrests both during and after his career for drug use, assault and other crimes. Last year, he pleaded guilty in Marin County to several charges, including felony cocaine possession, battery and evading a police officer.
