The 32-year-old NY street ball legend was charged with multiple infractions after a Brooklyn, N.Y., traffic stop resulted in authorities finding "firearms, a semi-automatic rifle, ammunition, a ballistic vest and marijuana inside their vehicle", ESPN reports.

Sebastian Telfair (shown playing for Phoenix in 2012) is facing weapons and marijuana charges.

Sebastian Telfair was arrested early on Sunday morning in Brooklyn on gun possession-related charges, according to NBC 4 NY. Upon examining the vehicle, officers found several weapons, ammunition, and a bullet proof vest. Police who pulled them over smelled marijuana and saw a lit "blunt" on the dashboard, authorities said.

Upon searching the truck, it's claimed officers discovered two bags of pot and the pair's gun collection - which included a SIG MPX Pistol, a Ruger LC9s, and a Springfield Armory XD9 Mod 2 Pistol.

Thomas was in the passenger's seat, and was hit with controlled substance and gun possession-related charges. He was selected with the 13th overall pick by the Portland Trail Blazers in 2004, but lasted just two seasons with the franchise before he was dealt to the Boston Celtics.

Former NBA player Sebastian Telfair was arrested this weekend with a small arsenal on him that made it seem like he was ready for military combat. Telfair was pulled over at a traffic stop in Brooklyn. In that instance, Telfair received three years' probation after pleading guilty to criminal possession of a weapon.
