Binghamton's Mayben Charged With Dealing Cocaine
Sept. 24, 2009
TROY, N.Y. (AP) - New York police have charged standout Binghamton University basketball player Emanuel "Tiki" Mayben with possessing and selling cocaine.
Police say Mayben had 3.4 grams of cocaine when he was arrested Wednesday night in his hometown of Troy. He was charged in an indictment with selling the drug.
Mayben set a school single-season record for assists last year while leading Binghamton to its first-ever appearance in the NCAA basketball tournament.
The 22-year-old Mayben was held in jail overnight and is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday. Authorities don't know if he has a lawyer.
Binghamton coach Kevin Broadus declined to comment.
Mayben, a senior, played at Massachusetts in the 2006-07 season and transferred to Hudson Valley Community College in the 2007-08 season.
