By The Associated Press

TOKYO (AP) ' Former Indiana player Lynn Washington has been arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle marijuana into Japan from the United States.

The 33-year-old forward with the Osaka Evessa was arrested for allegedly violating Japan's Cannabis Control Law, prompting the bj-league to issue a statement Wednesday saying all its players must comply with drug tests by noon Friday.

Washington allegedly conspired with his wife to smuggle more than 3 pounds of marijuana with a street value of about $110,000 through international mail in November, the Yomiuri Shimbun reported.

Washington, a native of San Jose, Calif., is a two-time bj-league MVP and also earned the All-Star Game MVP in each of the past two seasons.
