Minnesota Timberwolves forward Taj Gibson was reportedly arrested Thursday in New York City for driving with a suspended license.

The Timberwolves released a statement on the incident, per Jerry Zgoda of the Star-Tribune:

According to TMZ Sports, police noticed Gibson's license had been suspended after he was pulled over for making an illegal U-turn.

Gibson was released from police custody shortly after he was booked for misdemeanor aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

He is reportedly scheduled to make a court appearance Sept. 1.

On July 2, Gibson agreed to terms on a two-year, $28 million deal to join the Timberwolves, according to The Vertical's Shams Charania.
