Dante Cunningham, a former basketball player from Villanova University, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Radnor to equipment violations but had more serious charges dropped. Radnor police arrested Cunningham, 24, who now plays in the NBA, in April. When they arrested him, police said, there was a strong odor of marijuana coming from the open window of his car. A Tupperware container with a green vegetable matter was found under a fold-down center console next to the driver’s seat. There was also a silver grinder with the same green vegetable matter inside, police said. A purple ceramic smoking pipe, a partially smoked blunt and a loaded black BB gun were also found by police.
