Former Louisiana State University basketball star and NBA player Glen “Big Baby” Davis has to forfeit nearly $100,000 seized during a February 2018 drug arrest in Aberdeen, according to Davis’ lawyer Brandon Mead, who relayed the information to WMAR 2 News’ Brian Kuebler.

On top of the forfeited money, Davis will have to pay an additional $15,000 in fines. Mead said the case will now move to the inactive docket.

Davis was arrested at a Hampton Inn on February 7, 2018. The hotel owner smelled cannabis coming from Davis’ room and knocked on the door. He was met with a crude response from inside the room. Police then responded, and Davis consented to a search of the room. Police found 126 grams of cannabis, more than $92,000 in money in a briefcase, and documents that were “consistent with someone involved in the sale and distribution of narcotics,” police said.

Mead said Davis maintained his innocence following the arrest.
