UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) - Police say Cleveland Cavaliers guard Delonte West was arrested after officers pulled him over for speeding on a motorcycle while carrying two handguns and a shotgun in a guitar case.

Prince George's County police spokeswoman Sgt. Michelle Reedy says the Cleveland Cavaliers player was arrested about 10 p.m. Thursday.

Reedy says West was riding a Can-Am Spyder motorcycle north on the Capital Beltway in Upper Marlboro when he cut off an officer, who pulled him over.

Police say a handgun was found in his pocket, another in his pant leg and a shotgun in a guitar case strapped to his back.

West, 26, who lives in Brandywine, was charged with speeding and weapons counts. He was released on personal recognizance, and online court records did not list an attorney for him.
