Mike Scott, arrested Thursday morning in Banks County, told police that all the marijuana and MDMA seized from the car were his, and not those of his younger brother Antonn, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Mike Scott and his brother Antonn were arrested after a traffic stop in Banks County. According to the AJC, the two were bonded out Thursday. Mike Scott was charged with felony possession of marijuana and possession of Schedule I drug, while his brother, Antonn, was charged with fleeing and attempting to elude law enforcement officers, following too closely, felony possession of marijuana, and possession of Schedule I drug.

In their interviews with police, Mike reportedly told police that there was marijuana in the car, and that his brother did not immediately pull over because he was on his cell phone. Antonn reportedly denied speeding up from the police, and said that he did not do drugs.

From the AJC's Chris Vivlamore:

"Suspect #1 (Antonn Scott) stated that he did not use drugs. Suspect #1 stated that the drugs belonged to Suspect #2. Suspect #1 stated that he knew Suspect #2 smoked Marijuana and that he knew nothing about the Molly. Suspect #1 stated that he did not use drugs and that he would be willing to be drug tested."

The Hawks provided no comment on Friday, after little was said by head coach Mike Budenholzer regarding the incident. Scott, a Virginia native, was likely on his way home when the incident occured. The NBA does not have to wait for the legal process to play itself out before punishing Scott.
