Oklahoma City Thunder center Kendrick Perkins and new Milwaukee Bucks swingman Stephen Jackson were reportedly arrested for public intoxication and disorderly conduct early Saturday morning in Perkins' hometown of Beaumont, TX, according to a report by KDFM Channel 6. The two men were taken to Jefferson County Jail at 4 a.m., where they posted a $150 bond and were released.
The charge is not a serious one, as the maximum punishment is a fine of $500. However, what should raise some eyebrows is that Perkins was involved in an accident late Thursday night outside of Jackson's house, and was taken to the hospital. Perkins was treated for minor injuries and was released, and a representative said he was suffering from dehydration.
Perkins was traded to the Thunder at midseason, where he helped anchor a fortified front line. Jackson was traded from the Charlotte Bobcats to the Bucks during the 2011 NBA Draft.
