Police: NBA Star Caught On Camera Stealing Sunglasses

Police in South Florida said former Orlando Magic star Juwan Howard was videotaped on surveillance camera stealing a pair of sunglasses, according to Local 6 sports director Todd Lewis.

Howard, who currently plays for the Houston Rockets, was shopping at a Miami Beach store when the alleged incident happened.

Miami Beach police told WPLG-TV that when they reviewed the surveillance tape, Howard could be seen pocketing the sunglasses when the clerk's eyes were averted.

"The current Houston Rocket has made close to $100,000 million in the league," Lewis said.

Howard owns several homes in Florida and made nearly $6 million last year, according to the WPLG report.

"A warrant is expected," Lewis said.

Howard's estimated earnings *may* be exaggerated. Or a typo. Or maybe the guy actually said it, who knows

$100,000 million?


Wouldn't it be easier to say one hundred billion?

Perhaps Juwan thought the store was owned by Michigan boosters and he was just having flashbacks.

Maybe the guy was British.

Obviously a mistake though. USA Today reports that Howard will have made $142 million between 1996 and 2008, when his current contract expires. I suppose it's possible that he could have made $800 million his first two years, but it seems unlikely.

What's more of a crime; him stealing the sunglasses or him making all that money over his NBA career?
