Once again, it looks like West has run into some issues in his life. For awhile, it looked like West was trending up after Mark Cuban stepped in to get him some help following some disturbing videos.

Now, he’s back in police custody after allegedly pounding on the outside of the lobby of a station in Florida, and he’s facing multiple charges in response.
It’s a sad situation, and it makes you wonder if the former Mavericks guard will ever get it fully figured out.
West has struggled a lot since his days in the NBA came to an end. I have no idea how his story will end, but let’s all hope it’s not tragic.
