Cedric Ceballos was arrested on December 19 on suspicion of driving on a suspended license and other charges, records show.
​Cedric Ceballos, former player and in-arena emcee for the Phoenix Suns, was arrested and cited for a slew of driving violations on December 19 in Scottsdale.

The former star player and celebrity was stopped at about 3 a.m. near North Scottsdale Road and East Royal Palm Road in Scottsdale, according to a local news blog.

Court records show Ceballos was cited for driving on a suspended license, expired registration and another charge. The blog, Scottsdale Arizona News, reports that Ceballos was also cited for failing to provide proof of insurance.

 

 

It's unclear why an apparently successful guy like Ceballos wouldn't be able to register his car or have his driver's license suspended.

Two years ago, Ceballos was arrested in Blythe, California, and charged with driving on a suspended license after he attempted to get gas with an invalid credit card.

Sounds like a typical Scottsdale case of Driving While Black. They didn't get him for a moving violation, or a DUI, so why did they stop him in the first place? Instead, they loaded up on a slew of paperwork violations. If you are African American driving in Scottsdale, make sure your papers are in order!

If you are driving with expired registration, you have not reason to complain that you get stopped. You invited the office to stop you. There is an increased cop/motorist ratio at 0300. If you further don't have a license and insurance card, you are asking for more of the officer's affection. To even suggest this is a case of DWB is silly. Now if Mr. Ceballos was pulled over because he was "weaving in his lane" and the cop failed to investigate potential impairment, there might be some validity to the DWB claim.

This is a prime example of why the founders limited the government to "reasonable" searches. The founders did not want people "wondering" what they were doing out at 3:00 p.m. in the morning. It's the guy's private business, butt out!

Sometimes folks like this are just bigger than life and don't feel the need to comply with silly things like driver licenses, registering cars and such. What, I wonder was he doing at 0300? Most folks are tucked away in bed during that time....
