Associated Press – Former NBA player James Edward “JJ” Hickson has been arrested on armed robbery charges in Georgia.

Coweta County Sheriff spokesman Jimmy Yarbrough said in a statement that the 29-year-old Georgia native was arrested Friday and is being held without bond. It was unknown if he has an attorney.

Yarbrough says Hickson was charged in connection with a home invasion. He says at least two people were involved, but only Hickson faces charges.

Hickson was a standout basketball player at Joseph Wheeler High School in Marietta and attended North Carolina State before being drafted in 2008 by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

He also played for the Sacramento Kings, Portland Trail Blazers, Denver Nuggets and Washington Wizards throughout his eight-year career. He most recently played basketball overseas for the Lebanon Champville SC team.
