Gilbert Arenas was pulled over by California law enforcement early Thursday morning, and was subsequently detained by police.

TMZ captured footage of police handcuffing Arenas, and putting him into a police cruiser before removing numerous boxes of fireworks from the back of the former NBA star's pickup truck.

An LAPD bomb squad was called in to handle the fireworks, according to TMZ.

Arenas' most famous brush with authorities came in 2010, when he plead guilty to a felony charge of carrying an unlicensed pistol, after brandishing a handgun in the Washington Wizards' locker room.

The three-time All-Star last played for the Memphis Grizzlies during the 2011-12 season.

Arenas' Fourth of July party just got a little bit lamer.
