St. John’s commit Zach Brown is in the news again for all the wrong reasons.

According to a police report obtained by Miami radio host Andy Slater, “Brown was waiting in line at Walgreens [and] reached into the cash register and stole money.” The people behind him in line called police and reported his car, which had a broken window. The police caught up with him and Brown was found with $135 in five dollar bills in his pocket.

Brown was charged with first-degree petit theft and ticketed for driving on a suspended license with expired tags.

This is not Brown’s first run-in with the law. He was arrested and charged with credit card fraud and robbery, a felony, in May of 2016. Initially a UConn commit, Brown transferred to Putnam Science Academy in Connecticut but was dismissed from the school in a matter of weeks stemming from an incident where he reportedly got into a fight with opposing players.
