After his arrest for marijuana possession while in Houston, TX, Marcus Camby and his passenger are released on $2,000 bond, USA Today reports.


The incident occurred when the athlete was driving his Porsche and initially stopped for an equipment violation. Instead, one of the officers smelled weed coming from the car and found less than two ounces on the Porsche.


Although the amount is small, Camby and his passenger were arrested and charged with misdemeanor possession because the offense occurred near a school, which is a drug-free zone.


The 37-year-old Camby played center with the Portland Trail Blazers last season.
