LeBron James endorses many products. He has his shoes with Nike of course. He has several endorsements with Sprite, McDonald’s, and State Farm to name a few. But unknowingly to LeBron, his image is also be used to sell heroin.
A drug bust of a major heroin dealer outside Philadelphia left police officers with hundreds of packets of heroin, all labeled with a basketball player silhouette and the name “LeBron James.”
Marlon Guess, 19, was arrested last week in Upper Darby after an undercover officer purchased 140 bags of “LeBron” for $750, reports Philly.com.
Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said drug dealers usually use different terms to label their products, and he doesn’t think “LeBron James would be too happy” with his name on the street bags of heroin.
After trying to evade police, Guess was arrested, and is now being held on $250,000 cash bail.
And we all know that LeBron will not pick up the tab on this one.
