Former University of Louisville basketball player Luke Whitehead’s drug trafficking charges put up better numbers than he ever produced on the court. The former U of L forward was arrested and charged yesterday after detectives reportedly found 5 pounds of marijuana, two handguns, digital scales and $4,680 in cash at his Jeffersontown home, according to a Metro Police citation.
After college, Whitehead’s basketball career bounced overseas and in development leagues where he played for the Sioux Falls Skyforce. In fact, it can be argued that he’s better known in Louisville for releasing a hip-hop album, entitled “Unexpected,” under the rapper name L-Dubb, aka Big Lotto. The music career was pretty pathetic (check his music video “Yep” below), but maybe felony drug-trafficking will help by building up his street credentials.
