MIAMI — Ex-Baylor star and current NBA player for the Minnesota Timberwolves Taurean Prince was arrested in Miami Friday.

The Associated Press reported Thursday Prince was booked in the Miami-Dade County Corrections Department Jail. Information regarding specific charges or his bond was not immediately known.

The Minnesota Timberwolves said in a statement they are “aware of the alleged report regarding Taurean Prince and are in the process of gathering more information," the Associated Press wrote.
