19-year-old Taquan Mizzell, nicknamed Smoke, was arrested by a Charlottesville Police officer early Sunday morning.

According to police spokesman Lt. Ronnie Roberts, an officer saw Mizzell standing in the middle of 14th St. trying to kick a passing car. Police report that Mizzell was cooperative with the arresting officer.

The Bayside High School star of Virginia Beach would be a major pull for head coach Mike London and the Cavs, who haven’t signed a five-star recruit since 2009.

Hopefully for Mizzel’s sake this is just a small bump in the road.
