The videos show Houston police finding a bottle of Crown Royal and a bag of marijuana in Francis' vehicle. The former NBA player also verbally abused the officers during the exchange.
Francis called his arresting officers "suckas" and "groupie motherf--kers," getting angry after they touched his gold chain.
"Now you playing with fire, homie!" he can be heard saying in the video. "Take a picture. Play with that, watch what happens."
He also denied being drunk or threatening the officers during the arrest before asking them to drop him off at his grandmother's house. Francis ultimately pleaded guilty to one count of drunk driving and voluntarily entered an alcohol rehabilitation program, which the judge took into account during his trial.
"It was a mistake that happened, and I'm glad to get it behind me," Francis said outside the courtroom April 11, per Brian Rogers and Corey Roepken of the Houston Chronicle.
Per Rogers and Roepken, "Francis, 40, admitted guilt in exchange for time served and a $1,000 fine before County Court at Law Judge Paula Goodhart."
Francis played nine seasons in the NBA and last suited up during the 2007-08 season. For his career, where he played with the Rockets, Magic and Knicks, Francis averaged 18.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game.
