Roger Randolph was sentenced to three years in prison in 2005 for his role in the nightclub shooting in Anderson, which is about 30  miles (48 kilometers) south of Marion and is where court records say he had been living when he was killed. The shooting apparently stemmed from an argument on the dance floor.

Zach Randolph was at the club that night and was questioned, but he wasn’t charged.

Roger Randolph was charged last year with OWI, the Indiana equivalent of driving under the influence. There was a hearing last week in that case, which was unresolved.

Zach Randolph led Marion High School to a state championship in 2000 before heading to Michigan State University and then the NBA. In addition to the Kings, he has played for the Portland Trail Blazers, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis
Grizzlies. He is a two-time NBA All Star.

Roger Randolph was also a gifted basketball player growing up in Marion, but he got into trouble and was kicked off the high school
team. His mother sent him to a boarding school in Pennsylvania, according to a 2004 story by The Oregonian .

NBA Baller Zach Randolph Gets Arrest After For Marijuana Possession With Intent To Sell After Signing 24-Million Dollar Contract

(Los Angeles, CA) –  ESPN reports The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department arrested Sacramento Kings forward Zach Randolph on a felony charge of marijuana possession with intent to sell.

Other accounts claim the arrest was part of a Wednesday night disturbance that resulted in damage to five Los Angeles Police Department vehicles and one sheriff’s vehicle.

Police recovered two guns, impounded two vehicles and seized narcotics, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Liliana Preciado told The Associated Press.

According to the police report, Randolph was arrested at 11 p.m. PT, booked at 4:23 a.m. and released Thursday morning as bail was set at $20,000. His next court date is scheduled for Aug. 31, according to sheriff’s department’s online records.

Randolph’s agent and attorney Raymond Brothers said Thursday that the charges are false and misleading and that they are looking at options to resolve the matter.

LAPD officials told ABC-7 that officers were on routine patrol when they encountered a group drinking alcohol, smoking marijuana and playing loud music while blocking a street at the Nickerson Gardens project in Watts. The officers then tried to disperse the crowd, and the disturbance escalated.

Officers called for backup when the crowd grew and people began throwing bottles. Several police cars ended up with smashed windows and slashed tires.

The 6-foot-9 free agent signed a two-year, $24 million deal with the Kings in July.

 

A friend of Randolph’s faced a marijuana rap in 2010 after Indianapolis police found him driving Randolph’s sport utility vehicle with a cooler containing marijuana in it. Randolph maintained he was not involved and he was never charged.
