Markieff Morris was detained at Philadelphia International Airport Thursday, according to law enforcement officials.
Morris checked a bag for an international trip when “a suspicious item” was found in his suitcase, according to law enforcement.
A secondary search of his bag revealed what law enforcement officials called “suspected marijuana.” Terminal A at Philadelphia International is overseen by Tinicum Township Police in Delaware County, not by the Philadelphia Police Department. Philadelphia airport security notified Tinicum Township Police. Morris was then taken to the Tinicum Township Police precinct for questioning.
The Washington Wizards forward is still being investigated, sources say.
