Cameron Payne Arrested For Giving A Fake Name


Philadelphia 76ers guard Cameron Payne was arrested early Friday morning in Scottsdale, Arizona, according to a spokesperson for the Scottsdale Police Department.

Details about the incident remain scarce, but authorities report that officers responded to a call about a disturbance around 2:44 AM. Upon arrival, they interacted with two individuals, one of whom was later identified as Payne.

The 29-year-old NBA player was booked on charges of refusing to provide a truthful name and filing a false report to law enforcement. He was released from custody a short time later.

Neither the Scottsdale Police Department nor the Philadelphia 76ers have released further details about the events leading to Payne's arrest or the nature of the alleged disturbance. The motive behind Payne's actions remains unclear.

At this time, there is no information available regarding Payne's legal representation. The Philadelphia 76ers have yet to issue an official statement regarding the arrest.

Payne's arrest comes just days after the NBA Finals concluded. While the charges are misdemeanors, they could potentially lead to disciplinary action from the NBA under the league's Personal Conduct Policy. The extent of any potential punishment would depend on the specifics of the case and Payne's cooperation with the investigation.
