Eastern Michigan basketball player Emoni Bates was arrested on Sunday according to multiple reports. Bates, the No. 5-ranked high school player in the country in 2021, was near campus when he was pulled over by police. He was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and altering ID marks on a firearm.

Bates’ attorney, Steve Haney, spoke to ESPN and said to “reserve judgment.”

“Reserve judgment on this. There’s way more to the story. He borrowed someone’s car, was pulled over and a gun was located in the car.”

Eastern Michigan has suspended Bates until the legal process is resolved.
