Even though restricted from pursuing his career as a basketball player for Boston Celtics, West is showing interest in other fields of activity. He recently tweeted about receiving a new job and attached photos of his first day working for Regency Furniture Showrooms in Maryland.
The job application included questions regarding possible law breaking activities. He labeled his positive answer to ever being convicted of a crime as “misunderstanding”.
The basketball player was arrested in the last months of 2009, September 17th, for possession of guns that were found in a guitar case that was placed in a vechicle belonging to him. The case was attached to his 3 wheels motorcycle. During the summer of 2010, he pleaded guilty when charged with weapons trafficking.
During the summer of 2011, West applied to several other jobs for Home Depot and Sam’s Club. “I actually might have work with Sam’s (Club), BJ’s, selling knives, that’s pretty cool, too. I get a microphone and everything.”
His current employers were the last on West’s list. Regency furniture chain business revolves around manufacturing and marketing “living room, dining room, kitchen, office and bedroom furniture, along with mattress and accessories”.
