Emanuel 'Tiki' Mayben Arrested: Binghamton U Star Busted For Coke
Emanuel "Tiki" Mayben, a point guard at Binghamton University, has been arrested with possessing and selling cocaine. New York police claimed to have found 3.4 grams of cocaine on Tiki Mayben when they arrested him last night at approximately 8 pm. Police say the Tiki Mayben arrest came after a three-month investigation.
Emanuel Mayben was arrested while visiting family and friends in his hometown of Troy. He was charged with selling cocaine twice on June 29. 2009.
At a Thursday morning arraignment hearing, Tiki Mayben pleaded not guilty and was ordered held on $20,000 bail.
Tiki Mayben set a school single-season record for assists last year while leading Binghamton to its first-ever appearance in the NCAA basketball tournament. Mayben has no previous arrest record.
Binghamton head coach Kevin Broadus has yet to comment on the Tiki Mayben arrest. The arrest marks the second time that one of Broadus' players has run afoul of the law. In 2007, Binghamton guard Miladin Kovacevic put a classmate in a coma after a barroom brawl. Kovacevic ended up fleeing the US, returning to his native Serbia.
