Former NBA star Steve Francis was arrested Thursday night at Los Angeles International Airport, officials said.

Francis was taken into custody about 10 p.m. by airport police for resisting arrest, officials said.

He appeared intoxicated and became boisterous at one of the ticket counters, officials said. He was released after posting $10,000 bail early Friday.

The former All-Star played for the Houston Rockets and the Memphis Grizzlies, among other teams.
