Nets’ James Harden detained by French police but not arrested, per. Report


James Harden was detained by French police in Paris on Thursday but was ultimately not arrested. The incident took place when a car was pulled over by police officers due to the smell of cannabis, according to the French newspaper Le Parisien. Rapper Lil Baby, whose real name is Dominique Jones, was reportedly among those in the car.

The Harden, who is in Paris on Fashion Week, was apparently nearby, talking to friends and going to intervene. Harden was eventually free to leave after being briefly detained, but Lil Baby is reportedly in police custody on suspicion of transporting illegal drugs. Video of the incident surfaced online with Harden saying “I do not understand.”


Harden was originally scheduled to be in Las Vegas this week and train for the upcoming Olympics as a member of Team USA. However, he dropped out after suffering a grade 2 hoarding load in the second round of the mail season when his Brooklyn Nets lost to the Milwaukee Bucks. Harden played through the injury in the last three games of the series, but struggled statistically without his typical burst. The Nets eventually lost the series to the Bucks in seven games with Harden hobbled and Kyrie Irving out due to a sprained ankle.

Marijuana is illegal in France, and reports show that 20 grams were found in the vehicle. The prosecutor said an extra person other than Lil Baby was detained but would not release the person’s identity, according to ESPN. An investigation is reportedly underway.
