Atlanta Hawks player Mike Scott pled not guilty to all charges stemming from his July 2015 drug arrest … even though he previously admitted the drugs belonged to him.
As TMZ Sports reported, the 27-year-old forward was arrested last summer in Georgia after he and his brother allegedly led cops on a high-speed chase. When police searched their car, they found 10 grams of MDMA and more than an ounce of weed.
In a recorded interrogation with cops, Scott tried to take a bullet for his brother and said all the drugs were his. He was charged with two felonies — possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana. His brother was also hit with a bunch of charges.
According to a rep for the Banks County Court, Scott’s lawyer pled not guilty on his behalf to both counts on Monday.
If convicted on all charges, Scott faces up to 25 years in prison.
