When they looked through the car’s windshield (the tint made it difficult to see through the other windows), security saw a weapon on James’ lap — a .40 caliber Glock 23. That’s when security called the cops … who responded and were ultimately able to wake up the 6’4″ guard and place him under arrest. Bouknight was booked, before being released on $2,500 bond. He was NOT charged with any crime relating to the gun … North Carolina doesn’t require a permit to open carry a weapon.
Charlotte Hornets guard James Bouknight was found intoxicated and unconscious and holding a gun with his vehicle in drive before he was arrested Sunday morning on DWI charges, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg County Police. Police released the new details on Bouknight’s arrest on Wednesday. Police said they responded to reports that a person was passed out in his vehicle in a Charlotte parking lot Sunday morning, blocking traffic.
According to the police report, officers saw Bouknight, 22, unconscious inside the vehicle with the vehicle running and in drive. He had the handgun in his hands. Officers set up a perimeter and attempted to awaken Bouknight for approximately an hour using a public address system, blasting airhorns and using lights. Police said that once Bouknight was awake, he refused to comply with commands and appeared confused for several minutes. They said he ate food inside his vehicle and then crashed into two police cars — one of front of him and another behind him.
