The former NBA dud is said to have tried to rob a gas station

A former NBA first-round draft pick who never did much in the league and has reportedly struggled with other athletes in the past has now been accused of attempting to rob an Indiana gas station.

Just after midnight on November 8, police in Goshen, Indiana, about 20 minutes south of the Michigan border, received a report of an unruly man in a Phillips 66 area. An employee there claimed a man – later identified as 34 years old old Donté Greene – entered the store and demanded: “[G]Give me all the money!”

When the clerk took out his cell phone to call the police, Greene allegedly told him to put the phone down and not call the police. monitoring filming from the store also showed Greene strolling around the store for a while, removing items from his own pockets and even removing the shirt he was wearing.

Greene also allegedly “pounced” on the clerk, who continued to retreat behind the counter, police said.

Workers at a Taco Bell next to the Phillips station eventually called 911 about the incident. It turned out that the police had already searched the area for a drunk driver. They quickly arrested Greene and framed him tries robbery, intimidation and interference in the reporting of a crime. If convicted, he faces up to six years in prison.

Notably, Greene has not been charged with any alcohol-related offenses despite reports of a drunk driver in the area. He also reportedly had no weapon with him when he was arrested and did not take anything from the store.

Greene is probably best remembered for the high expectations many basketball fans had of him after a successful season at Syracuse University in which he led the team in points. He then submitted to the 2008 NBA Draft and was selected in the first round by the Memphis Grizzlies. However, the Grizzlies immediately traded him to the Houston Rockets, who then traded him to the Sacramento Kings in August of that year. Greene then spent four lackluster years with the Kings and their NBA Development League partner, the Reno Bighorns.

Greene then bounced through various NBA Development League and NBA Summer League teams before eventually heading overseas to pursue his career. He has had stints in Puerto Rico, China, Dominican Republic, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Taiwan.

in the 2011, Greene reportedly got into a fight with former Kings teammate DeMarcus Cousins. He was also arrested for fighting with former St. Louis Rams linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar outside a Miami nightclub in 2014.

Arrest records show that Greene currently resides in Waldorf, Maryland, about 75 miles south of Towson, Maryland, where Greene grew up. It is unclear why he was in Indiana at the time of the incident. The former NBA dud is said to have tried to rob a gas station
