Isaiah Rider Is a Wanted Man

4/28/2008 3:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A Los Angeles Commissioner has just issued a $30,000 bench warrant for former NBA player Isaiah Rider. The warrant was issued after Rider failed to show up for his scheduled arraignment this morning.

Rider, who played for the Lakers and Timberwolves, was busted last month while driving through Skid Row in L.A. for failure to stop at the limit line at an intersection. He originally was booked for grand theft auto -- since the 2001 Chevy Monte Carlo he was driving seemed to have been a stolen vehicle -- but only was charged with one misdemeanor count of driving with a suspended license. Isaiah was released on $25,000 bail.

He already has an alleged prior conviction for driving with suspended license back in 2007.

He's Boring now    

Just like Michael Vick...surrond someone with everything they need and want and still they cling to the ways of the hood....the hood must be the replacement daddy's for these people with this generation. I recall the days when blacks had fathers and went about the world the right way...how it got so far from the words of MLK and the moods of Motown is beyond me. Cant blame the White man or govt for that, unless your Rev. Wright.

Am trying to think of a white ball player who has pulled stunts like this...there might be one or two that have, but I cant think of them right now...why is this so common to black professional players? Dont answer, I think we all know...and it doesnt include the white man being at fault...those are the old days.

I had to go back and read the story 3 times and I still don't get it. What is with the harsh comments and high bail for a damn traffic violation? Am I missing something?

The guy just barely got out of the Marin County Jail in Northern California last month. Could have sworn I saw him in the elevator at the Marin County Civic Center early this morning ... maybe he got confused, you know, with the crack habit and all.

Democrats are evil    

Is there any doubt now that Rider is a horse's Ass. And #7 Bird, you obviously don't have a clue about this brain dead athlete. A millionaire who has found trouble since the eighth grade and continues his reckless behavior long after his NBA career has ended. He represents his brothers well. He is a perfect example why 90% of the prison population is black. He's not destined for a long life, that's for sure.
