Miami Beach police said New York Knicks' J.R. Smith was arrested on a bench warrant for not having a valid driver's license. The Knicks' 'Sixth Man' was picked up after cops recognized him on South Beach's Washington Avenue at around 8:30 p.m..
A routine search revealed the bench warrant stemming from Smith being cited last year in Miami for driving a scooter without a valid driver's license.
Smith was taken to the Miami-Dade County Jail and he was booked under his legal name of Earl Joseph Smith before he bonded out early Friday morning.
The troublesome shooting guard was picked up by the Knicks in February after playing in China during the NBA lockout.
Maybe it's about time Smith made a trip down to the DMV.
