New Minnesota Timberwolves forward Taj Gibson was arrested after he produced a suspended license during a traffic stop earlier this week, New York police confirmed to USA TODAY Sports early Saturday morning.

Gibson was stopped around 2:45 a.m. on Thursday after an officer observed his vehicle making an illegal U-turn in Queens, according to New York police spokesperson Christopher Pisano. Gibson gave police an Illinois license that was suspended.

Gibson, 32, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, a misdemeanor punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a fine of up to $500. He was also ticketed for the illegal U-turn.
