MAXWELL IN TROUBLE WITH THE LAW - AGAIN

Former Houston Rocket Vernon Maxwell is back in trouble with the law after police pulled him over for a traffic violation and found what they said was marijuana in his car.

Maxwell, who quit the Rockets during the NBA playoffs, and subsequently was released by the club, was arrested Monday night after police said he ran a red light along Richmond Avenue, site of a number of Houston's nightclubs.Maxwell spent the night in a police station lockup before he posted a $1,000 bond this morning and was released.

He had no comment as he hustled from the building, accompanied by his attorney.
