Eastern Michigan’s Emoni Bates, former No. 1 basketball recruit, faces gun charges

Eastern Michigan University basketball player Emoni James-Wayne Bates, a top basketball recruit, is facing gun charges after he was arrested during a traffic stop Sunday night in Washtenaw County. 

Bates, 18, faces two felony charges in Washtenaw County’s 14A-1 District Court, online court records show.

One charge is for carrying a concealed weapon. The other is for altering identification marks on a weapon or firearm. Both were requested by the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Department.

Sheriff’s deputies stopped a vehicle in Superior Township at 10:43 p.m. Sunday after the driver failed to stop at the intersection of Nottingham and Clark roads, department Director of Community Engagement Derrick Jackson said in response to a question about Bates’ arrest.

“During the investigation a firearm was discovered, and the 18-year-old driver was taken into custody,” Jackson said in a statement.
