PORTLAND, Ore. - Portland Trail Blazers forward Zach Randolph was a passenger of a driver cited for racing in downtown Portland early Thursday, police said.
Taquan Portis, 22, was cited for speed racing, careless driving, failure to obey a traffic signal and no front plate — all traffic violations. He is scheduled to appear in court July 6.
Portis was driving a Dodge Magnum registered to Randolph when the two were pulled over about 3:15 a.m.
Police found two loaded handguns in the car, but Randolph was not cited because he has a concealed weapons permit for the firearms, said Officer Catherine Kent, a Portland police spokeswoman.
Officers estimated the car was racing at 50 to 60 mph in a 20 mph zone, Kent said.
The Trail Blazers issued a statement that said the team would conduct its own investigation into the incident.
The nation grieved for those hurt, killed and affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. After one of the suspects was caught on Friday — following a day-long lockdown and manhunt — sports returned to Boston over the weekend.
Indiana lost Game 1 in OT on a LeBron James layup at the buzzer. Game 2 offers a chance to even the series.
