A judge has issued a ruling to suppress all evidence and dismiss a felony drug case against Mike Scott.
Banks County (Ga.) Superior Judge Currie Mingledorff II granted Scott’s motion to suppress evidence against the forward and his brother, Antonn Scott, largely based upon testimony and evidence that suggests a pattern of racial profiling by law enforcement in the county.
“In my 35 years of practicing law, this could be the worst case of racial profiling I have ever seen,” Steve Weiner, counsel for Mike Scott, told The Vertical. “Hopefully this will lead to Banks County, Georgia, re-evaluating their policies.”
The Atlanta Hawks traded Scott in February and was then waived by the Phoenix Suns.
Several teams considered signing Scott but decided to wait until a resolution was reached in his court case.
