West plea deal in Md. weapons case

By Washington Post editors

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Delonte West has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors on weapons and traffic charges.

A spokesman for Prince George's County State's Attorney Glenn Ivey says West will plead guilty to carrying concealed weapons and transporting loaded weapons. His deal says he'll do court-supervised electronic monitoring, complete community service and undergo psychological counseling.

While waiting to stand trial Thursday, West said he feels “blessed.” Authorities say the basketball player was carrying two loaded handguns, a loaded shotgun and an 8 1/2-inch Bowie knife while speeding on a three-wheel motorcycle on the Capital Beltway in Prince George's County, Md. last September. Police say West, who lives in Brandywine, Md., was pulled over after cutting off an officer.
