Cameron Payne Makes Unwanted Headlines With Scottsdale Arrest


Philadelphia 76ers guard Cameron Payne found himself in hot water early Friday morning after being arrested in Scottsdale, Arizona. According to the Scottsdale Police Department, officers responded to a disturbance call around 2:44 am. Upon arrival, they encountered Payne and another individual.

Details regarding the nature of the disturbance remain undisclosed. However, things took a turn when Payne allegedly refused to identify himself and provided officers with false information. This resulted in his arrest on charges of refusing to provide a truthful name and filing a false report to law enforcement.

Payne was booked at the Scottsdale City Jail but later released. The 29-year-old guard has yet to comment on the incident. The Sixers organization is likely aware of the situation and will be monitoring developments closely.

This arrest comes at an awkward time for Payne, who is a free agent this summer. While a minor incident, it could potentially raise concerns among teams interested in his services.

We’ll see how this situation unfolds and whether there are any further repercussions for the Sixers guard.
