Los Angeles prosecutors have filed auto theft charges against former NBA forward Jeff Adrien, after he allegedly took a Mercedes Benz from a hotel valet last month. Adrien was seen driving the car and returning it to a hotel parking lot on December 7. The hotel valet attempted to talk to Adrien about the car, but he left the scene. He was arrested later that day and was released on a $25,000 bond. While in the NBA, Adrien played for the Minnesota Timberwolves, Charlotte Bobcats, Milwaukee Bucks, Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors. He last played professionally during the regular season for the Guangdong Southern Tigers in early 2015. He was signed by the New Orleans Pelicans prior to the 2015-16 season, but was waived after appearing in three pre-season games.
