Last summer, Kent Bazemore was convicted on a DUI charge, Virginia Beach spokeswoman Margie Hobbs said.
According to court records, Bazemore did not fulfill the conditions of his sentence, which involved attending ASAP classes. A court appearance was scheduled in connection with the missed classes.
When he didn't show up to court, an arrest warrant was issued.
Hobbs said a Virginia Beach detective drove to the Ted Constant Center Wednesday night, knowing Bazemore would be there.
After warming up with the team, Bazemore came off the court and was arrested in the back of the arena.
