Duquesne's Baldonado arrested again
By Dave Mackall
Thursday, September 6, 2007

Stuard Baldonado, a 6-foot-7 forward who already had been suspended from Duquesne University and its men's basketball team following his arrest on a drug conspiracy charge, was arrested again last night on a new drug charge.

City police said they spotted Baldonado smoking marijuana on a sidewalk near the school.

Officers from the city's Street Response Unit were driving along Tustin Street about 6 p.m. Wednesday, when they spotted Baldonado sitting on a plastic chair, smoking a blunt, city police Sgt. Eric Holmes said. A blunt is street slang for a cigar with the tobacco removed and replaced with marijuana.

Holmes said officers saw Baldonado throw the blunt away when he spotted them but that they could still smell marijuana.

Baldonado, a native of San Andres, Colombia, and a junior college transfer from Miami-Dade College in Florida, will be mailed a summons charging him with possession of a small amount of marijuana, Holmes said.

The sergeant said the same officers arrested Baldonado on Friday, accusing him with acting as a lookout for another man involved in a street drug deal.

Baldonado, who was one of five players shot last season following a dance on campus, first was arrested Friday while the Duquesne men's team was en route to Toronto for an exhibition tour. He did not accompany the team on the trip because of passport problems.

He missed all of last season recovering from a gunshot wound that nearly severed his spine.
