LAPD officers were called to the Nickerson Gardens area in L.A. around 10 PM - and when they arrived, cops found a large crowd of people smoking, playing loud music and blocking the roadway.

Another man who was arrested was allegedly an ex-convict in possession of a gun.

Officers chased the group and detained two men. Three crowd members were allegedly spotted grabbing their waistbands and running, prompting the police to chase them down. In 2003, as Portland was trying to shed the Jail Blazer era, he was charged for driving under the influence following a police stop when officers smelled marijuana in his vehicle.

Randolph was booked at 4:23 a.m. Thursday in the Los Angeles County Jail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department inmate records. Police also recovered two guns, impounded two vehicles and impounded narcotics during the clash, she said. The two-time All-Star spent the previous eight seasons with the Grizzlies. Over that time, he has earned more than $175 million in salary alone. He was the 19th overall pick.

Randolph averaged 14.1 points and 8.3 rebounds previous year for the Memphis Grizzlies. Early in his second season in NY, he was traded to the Clippers along with Mardy Collins for Cuttino Mobley and Tim Thomas in 2008.

The 36-year-old Randolph ranks first in Grizzlies' franchise history in rebounds (5,612) and is second behind Mike Conley in points (9,261).
