Cedric Ceballos, former player and in-arena emcee for the Phoenix Suns, was arrested and cited for a slew of driving violations on December 19 in Scottsdale.

The former star player and celebrity was stopped at about 3 a.m. near North Scottsdale Road and East Royal Palm Road in Scottsdale, according to a local news blog.

Court records show Ceballos was cited for driving on a suspended license, expired registration and another charge. The blog, Scottsdale Arizona News, reports that Ceballos was also cited for failing to provide proof of insurance.



It's unclear why an apparently successful guy like Ceballos wouldn't be able to register his car or have his driver's license suspended.

Two years ago, Ceballos was arrested in Blythe, California, and charged with driving on a suspended license after he attempted to get gas with an invalid credit card.
