Isaiah Rider

Arrested for Ditching Class

10/6/2011 11:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006_isaiah_rider_ex
Former NBA Slam Dunk champion Isaiah "J.R." Rider is a total flake who blew off his required domestic violence classes and failed to complete 90 hours of community service ... this according to court docs obtained by TMZ.

Rider -- who was arrested for allegedly assaulting his wife last year -- was busted in Arizona for violating his probation Tuesday ... but in court, he had no idea what he did wrong. 

According to the docs, Rider completely ignored his probation requirements -- which included 100 hours of community service, (he only did 10), completion of domestic violence classes, submitting to a urinalysis test and paying fines.

Rider's probation officer TRASHED the former NBA star in court papers, saying Rider's "failure to participate in treatment after so many opportunities appears to reinforce his lack of intent to successfully complete probation."

Cops also believe Rider is a flight risk -- and want to keep him locked up. Rider is due back in court on Oct. 11.

His wife should stop complaining and be thankful he didn't run off and leave her with two kids.

Why are more and more pro sports athletes getting arrested for DUI, spousal abuse, drug possession, etc?

What kind of example are they making for children?

Someone PLEASE think of the children!!!

If he did 10 hours already of community service then how did he completely ignore his probation requirements sounds like to me he just didn't complete all of the requirements set forth. If your going to paraphrase get it right.This is not the first time and on the show as well when something is made out to be something it isn't.

help this young woman    

Nothing to get upset about. Linds does this all the time. Hell.... she's supposed to be doing classes and community service, but right now she's in Paris doing lots of French cocaine... no worries. Her lawyer will get her out of it. She's a celebrity, you know.

He must think he's Lindsay Lohan or something, everyone else has to actually partake in their assigned community service.

So, how long do you think before we hear about him actually killing his wife? He obviously thinks he did nothing wrong.

OH!!! Now I get it, I didn't know that was the same idiot that was in court pretending he didn't know what probation he blew off. That guy is truly retarded- and I don't mean the word in a pejorative way, he strikes me as... let's say, missing a lot of cards in the deck. See what happens when you give idiots the celebrity court treatment-Arizona is picking up California's bad practices and look at how f-ed up that state is.
