Dallas Mavericks guard Delonte West’s past is hurting his chances to travel to the White House. He is banned from attending, according to multiple reports.

West had hoped to travel with his Mavericks teammates on Monday to meet the President. However, his arrest from 2009 is coming back to haunt him on this trip.

“I’m banned from going to the White House, so I’m not going to make it,” West said. ”But I’m going home to D.C., I’m just not allowed to go to the White House. That’s what happens when you make bad decisions in your life. You can’t go to the White House.”

He was arrested in September 2009 in Maryland. The police said that West was speeding on a motorcycle while carrying two loaded handguns and a loaded shotgun in a guitar case.

West pleaded guilty to the weapons charges that he was facing. He did not receive jail time, instead, he received home detention and community service.

He joined the Mavericks in December 2011. He played the previous season with the Boston Celtics.

West has played in nine games with the Mavericks so far. In his last game, he scored 12 points in a win over the New Orleans Hornets on January 7th.
