According to Entertainment Tonight, Iman Shumpert, who won season 30 of the popular dance competition show, was arrested at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport after TSA reported a “potential drug violation” ahead of his scheduled flight.

Police were called to the terminal after TSA agents found a “green leafy substance” in Shumpert’s bag, according to a DFW Department of Public Safety incident report obtained by Entertainment Tonight. Shumpert said that the 6.12 ounces of marijuana belonged to him, according to the report.

TMZ reported that Shumpert was set to board a flight to Los Angeles to see his daughter. He was unable to catch the flight, however, because he was placed under arrest. Police also discovered a “Glock magazine and 14 9mm rounds” but no gun in Shumpert’s personal items, according to the report.

Heavy was able to verify this information via the official arrest report. Heavy also reached out to Shumpert’s rep for comment.

TMZ reported that possession of 6 ounces of marijuana is considered a “state jail felony.”

“It means the charge is the lowest level felony in Texas and has special rules that apply to punishment and release. These include rules about probation, the length of sentence, ‘good-time,’ use against a person later, and the facility of imprisonment,” according to Cofer Luster law firm.

Shumpert could find himself behind bars for two years if he ends up being convicted. In addition, Shumpert could face fines of up to $10,000.

Shumpert was previously arrested in 2016 in Fayette County, Georgia. At the time, Shumpert was riding in a rental car and was pulled over for a lane change violation, according to TMZ. Shumpert failed a field sobriety test resulting in a DUI charge. At the time, he was found with less than one ounce of marijuana on him.

Shumpert’s sentencing was in December 2018, according to The Blast. He entered a plea of no-contest and was placed on probation by the judge overseeing the case.
