Chane Behanan keeps finding trouble.

Louisville TV station WAVE reported that Behanan was cited for marijuana possession early Wednesday after a traffic stop. A starter on last year’s Louisville national championship team, Behanan was suspended last fall, reinstated, then ultimately dismissed.

He tweeted at 2:16 a.m. that it was "time to make some changes" in his life.

The Cincinnati native announced in January he was transferring to Colorado State, where he’ll have one year of eligibility left for the 2014-15 season.

What this arrest means for his basketball future remains unclear. Behanan had been training and going through substance abuse treatment in Houston with former NBA coach John Lucas before announcing he was headed to Colorado State.

Behanan averaged 9.8 points and 6.5 rebounds last season at Louisville. A 2012 Final Four ring with Behanan’s name inscribed showed up for sale via an online auction house last winter but was quickly removed. Behanan’s family reported it stolen.

He averaged 7.6 points and 6.3 rebounds in 12 games in 2013-14 before being dismissed following Louisville’s loss to Kentucky in late December.
