Phoenix Suns Star Witnesses Mother's Arrest

5/18/2010 7:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Phoenix Suns superstar Amar'e Stoudemire had more on his mind than basketball during last night's playoff game against the Los Angeles Lakers  -- he watched his mother get arrested this weekend.

TMZ has learned the 6'10" NBA star was named in a police report involving an incident with his mother, Carrie Mae Stoudemire, that took place Saturday afternoon.

According to the report, police in Scottsdale, Arizona pulled Carrie over for allegedly driving erratically -- and eventually placed her in handcuffs for refusing to take a field sobriety test.  But soon after the stop, another car -- a Bentley -- arrived to the scene.

Two incredibly tall men emerged from the car -- and a responding officer claims he recognized one of them as Amar'e.  According to the report, Carrie began kicking the patrol car and yelling for Amar'e to "get a lawyer."

The officer claims he then asked Amar'e and his friend to leave the scene because they were causing Carrie to "act out." According to the report, Amar'e immediately complied with the officer's request.

Carrie -- who has a long history of alcohol abuse -- was eventually booked for speeding, failure to drive in a single lane and operating a vehicle without a court-ordered breathalyzer ignition interlock device.

I just read the do***ent - the woman is a loony bird!! A total racist telling the cop that he was just mad that the US has a black president!! What a nut case! She thinks just because her son can drop a ball into a hoop that she's above the law. How ghetto!!!

Carrie Mae, you can rant and rave all you want about the cop being mad about having a black president. But Obama's mother and HER parents raised Obama. And made him what he is. His black father abandoned him.

I applaud Amar'e for respecting the requests of the arresting officers to leave and not add to the situation. Situations like those are never good, and while I am sure it was hard for Amar'e to leave his mother, he did the right thing.

First, Lebron James's mom was accused of sleeping with one of his teammates. Now, we have Amare Stoudemire's mother being arrested for a host of driving infractions. Who's next?



Are there any other recalcitrant mothers of professional athletes we should be made aware of? LOL This type of behavior has got to embarrass the hell out of their sons.



Amaire was probably preoccupied with his mother's arrest during Game 1. It certainly wouldn't enhance his concentration.

As expected on anything TMZ posts that involves Black people racists will show up and peddle their filth. Isn't it #4, #5, #6 #10?
