Cleveland Cavaliers champion Iman Shumpert has been arrested for a marijuana DUI.Shumpert's arrest took place in Atlanta last month after Atlanta police officers stopped the NBA player after making a lane change because his taillights were not on. Reports reveal that upon the traffic stop officers noticed a strong aroma of weed coming from inside the rented Audi A3 and that Shumpert's eyes were completely bloodshot.

Big trouble for Cleveland?

Iman stated to the police that he was coming from his "homegirl's house" and that he was on his way to pick up his father from the airport.

A field sobriety test was administered on the spot which determined that Iman was under the influence. He also admitted to the officers that he had been smoking pot just before leaving his girlfriend's home.

Upon searching the car, officers found a mason jar containing less than an ounce of pot inside The officers also asked Shumpert to perform a blood test in which he refused claiming that it would draw too much attention to him because people would recognize the current NBA champion. Iman was handcuffed and arrested at the scene.

He was hauled off to a nearby police station where he was booked on charges of a marijuana DUI, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana, and failure to maintain his lane.

Beware the Cleveland/Kardashian curse!

The Cleveland Cavalier's organization issued an official statement revealing that they have talked with Shumpert about the issue and that they would be fully monitoring the progression of the pending case.

A court date has not been set at this time. The Cav's organization did add that no one from the team would be further commenting on the matter at this time.

Now for the big question Cleveland fans...could this be a sign of the Cleveland Curse rearing its ugly head once again? Coincidentally, as previously reported this potential first kink has arrived around the same time that it was reported that Tristan Thompson had begun dating reality star Khloe Kardashian.

It has been stated over the years that athletes who date Kardashian women appear to fall victim to the Kardashian curse which entails terrible seasons for themselves and those around them. It has been documented that Khloe Kardashian's involvement with at least two NBA players (Lamar Odom, James Harden) led their game to significantly suffer during their involvement with Khloe.

Dedicated Cleveland fans can't help but remain a bit superstitious when it comes to their beloved sports teams, just putting it out there. Could this be a sign that bad things may happen should Kardashian remain closely associated with the Cavs?

Something to worry about, or just silly superstition, are you willing to tempt the fates so soon? You make the call.
