Coleman, Derrick

Charge: Disorderly conduct

Arrest Date: August 9, 1999

Franchise: New Orleans Pelicans

Age 32

Details: While eating in a Detroit Chinese restaurant with pals Thomas ‘Hit Man’ Hearns and Jalen Rose, Coleman apparently decided to stand up and urinate in front of dozens of shocked patrons.  He drove off in his Bentley convertible after being asked to leave.  Police were called and he was later arrested and pleaded ‘no contest’ to a disorderly conduct charge.  This was the second of what would be three arrests in 1999 for the NBA crime legend, of a total of a record seven arrests during his NBA career.
