The brothers were headed to Virginia on July 30, 2015, to attend a basketball camp Scott was hosting. But just minutes later, Mike and Antonn Scott were on the pavement, handcuffed and under arrest. Deputies found 1.2 ounces of marijuana in a Tupperware container and 10.9 grams of ecstasy in a baggie in the back seat of their rented SUV. They also seized the $1,684 in cash Scott had on him. But in a scathing ruling this week, a Banks County judge eviscerated the case against the Scotts. The judge determined they were targets of racial profiling, found their traffic stop unjustified and threw out all evidence seized in the case.
Storyline: Mike Scott Case
Scott, who was traded by the Hawks to the Phoenix Suns this past February, may have been one of the last people Banks County deputies wanted to pull over with an unjustified stop. With a $3.3 million contract, Scott had the wherewithal to mount an aggressive defense. His legal team blanketed the Sheriff’s Office with Open Records Act requests and looked into Register’s past employment, finding he’d been forced to resign from two law enforcement agencies, according to court testimony. The attorneys then used those records to undercut Register’s account of what happened.
During a Feb. 24 hearing in the case, Register denied engaging in racial profiling. “I’m mixed myself,” he said, referring to his race. “I would never stop somebody due to their race, whether they’re white, black, pink, green, purple, pink, whatever.” Register, who joined the Banks County Sheriff’s Office in September 2012, said he was a member of a three-person “crime interdiction unit” patrolling I-85.
Storyline: Mike Scott Case
A Georgia Superior Court judge has suppressed evidence in NBA player Mike Scott’s felony drug case, ruling that police officers unlawfully stopped the vehicle in which he was a passenger by using racial profiling. In 2015, Scott was charged with felony possession of marijuana and possession of a Schedule I drug (MDMA, commonly called Molly). He faced up to 25 years in prison, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Storyline: Mike Scott Case
Banks County (Ga.) Superior Judge Currie Mingledorff II granted Scott’s motion to suppress evidence against the forward and his brother, Antonn Scott, largely based upon testimony and evidence that suggests a pattern of racial profiling by law enforcement in the county. “In my 35 years of practicing law, this could be the worst case of racial profiling I have ever seen,” Steve Weiner, counsel for Mike Scott, told The Vertical. “Hopefully this will lead to Banks County, Georgia, re-evaluating their policies.”
