WOODBURY - A Hofstra University basketball player is facing drug charges after a routine traffic stop in Brooklyn.

Coombs-McDaniel was arrested without incident and charged with criminal possession of marijuana and issued a traffic summons for no safety belt.
Hofstra University officials declined to comment on the situation.
