ESPN provided more details on Caruso's arrest:
Lieutenant Bobby Richardson of the Texas A&M Police Department told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne that around 2 p.m. local time, Caruso tried to board a flight at McKinsey Airport, which is located on the A&M campus.
The Transportation and Security Administration searched Caruso's bags and found a herb grinder that contained marijuana, Richardson said.
Caruso, who was born and raised in College Station and played college basketball there for Texas A&M, has been in the NBA for four seasons.
The Lakers signed him to a two-way contract in July 2017, and he's been with the franchise ever since.
The 27-year-old won an NBA title with the 2019-20 Lakers, averaging 6.5 points in 24.3 minutes per game in the playoffs.
The guard is set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer.
