Default Former Jazz big-man Jose Ortiz arrested in huge drug bust

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico Former NBA player Jose Ortiz has been arrested in Puerto Rico after federal agents say they seized 218 marijuana plants and 40 rounds of assault-rifle ammunition at his house. Ortiz was charged Thursday with possession with intent to distribute the plants. It was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer. U.S. Attorney Rosa Emilia Rodriguez says the 47-year-old ex-player faces a minimum of five years in prison if found guilty. She said federal agents Wednesday raided his rented home in the central mountain town of Cayey. That followed a monthlong investigation following a tip to Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The 6-foot-10 Ortiz played two seasons for the Utah Jazz, the last in 1990. He played in college at Oregon State.

I don't know what to say... LOL

He already had the drug dealer mustache, so it's somehow not that surprising.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- The attorney for former NBA player Jose Ortiz says his client will plead guilty to drug charges in Puerto Rico following an agreement with federal prosecutors.
Hector Guzman Jr. filed a motion Thursday requesting a hearing so Ortiz can enter a new plea.
Ortiz was arrested in June after federal agents seized 218 marijuana plants at his house along with 40 rounds of ammunition. He was accused of possession with intent to distribute the plants.
Ortiz later agreed to enter a drug rehabilitation program.
He played at Oregon State before spending two seasons with the Utah Jazz, the last in 1990. He also played in Spain and Greece and was on the Puerto Rican national team for more than 20 years, appearing in four Olympics.
