Minnesota Timberwolves' Taurean Prince was arrested on a warrant on Thursday, according to multiple reports.

According to Andy Slater, jail records state he was arrested on a fugitive warrant. KSTP notes he was booked into Miami-Dade County jail shortly before 6 p.m.

The warrant was reportedly out of his home state of Texas and stemmed from traces of drugs found during a traffic stop, according to the Miami Herald.
