As seen in the video, Young laughed at the amount of police present during the incident:
Nick Young @NickSwagyPYoung
3 cars for no plates in a loaner car (rental car) https://t.co/uXIAUgiBgE3/1/2016, 3:52:40 AM
The 30-year-old veteran offered no explanation for why his rental car was without plates.
Following the stop, Young posted two additional tweets questioning if he should be to blame for the fact that the car was lacking plates: "So do I give the rental car place this [ticket?] How [does] that work[?] ... Knowing it's a rental car should they [have] still wrote me this [ticket?]"
It is unclear how Young's off-court problem will ultimately play out, but the 2015-16 season has also proven to be one of his worst on the court.
The USC product is averaging just 7.4 points per game for the struggling Lakers, which is a career low. He is also appearing in only 18.9 minutes per contest off the bench in 49 games, and he is shooting 33.3 percent from long range, which is well below his career mark of 37.1 percent.
Per Spotrac.com, he is under contract for the 2016-17 season and also has a player option for 2017-18.
Young's future with the Lakers will likely be a hot-button issue within the franchise this coming offseason, and it's entirely possible that Swaggy P's personal vehicles will be swapping California plates for a different state soon.
