Bates was once considered a LeBron James type of recruit midway through his HS career, or at least a surefire top 3 pick after a year in college.

Per CBS:

Former five-star recruit Emoni Bates, a second-year player who transferred to Eastern Michigan this offseason after a one-season stint at Memphis, was arrested and taken into custody Sunday night on felony gun charges.

Bates was pulled over on a routine traffic stop after failing to stop at an intersection, where police then discovered a firearm. He faces two felony charges: one for carrying a concealed weapon and another for altering ID marks on a weapon, according to WXYZ in Detroit.

Steve Haney, lawyer for Bates, told ESPN that his client was driving a borrowed car that had a gun inside when he was pulled over, and he was subsequently booked into jail on gun charges.

It was his cousin’s car, but he can’t remember his cousin’s name.
