Darius Miles encounter with Police

Trail Blazers' Darius Miles caught up in crime sweep


EAST ST. LOUIS, ILLINOIS - It appears Trail Blazers Darius Miles is hanging out with the wrong crowd.

Miles, who is now a free agent, is from East St. Louis, Illinois.


He was headed to a graduation last night but not before police forced him to the ground.


Miles was caught up in a crime sweep, but was not charged or arrested.


However, Miles got to see firsthand how serious the East St. Louis Police Department is getting about getting drugs out of their community.


One of Miles' friends was arrested on drug charges, and another was booked after he threw a loaded gun out of the car.


Miles was allowed to continue on to a high school graduation.


The Trailblazers stand by Miles, saying he did not do anything wrong.


The Blazers acquired Miles in January from the Cleveland Cavaliers.

East St. Louis makes Chicago's West Side look like The Hamptons and Gary, Indiana look like Beverly Hills, which is saying something.


East St. Louis may be the worst city in the country, just not a smart place to be, I have no idea why Miles would go back there.

This is really no biggie for DMiles, he wasn't charged or arrested so he can go on with his life.


I can understand that he wanted to go back to his neighborhood but he's an idiot for riding with his little druggie friends.
