Phoenix Suns backup center Richaun Holmes was booked into a Miami jail Wednesday night on a misdemeanor marijuana charge after being pulled over in Aventura.

Holmes, 25, was arrested along with former developmental league player James Webb, whose last stop in the NBA was a brief stint with the Brooklyn Nets last year.

Both were charged with possession of cannabis and posted bond after just a couple hours in jail on Wednesday night.

Holmes, who was booked as Richard Holmes, played in 68 games last year with the Suns, averaging 8 points per game behind star rookie Deandre Ayton.

He was the second Phoenix Suns player arrested this month in Miami-Dade. Forward Josh Jackson was arrested at the Rolling Loud music festival after police said he tried to enter a VIP area without a pass, then ran away from officers.
