DETROIT (AP) Authorities say former Michigan State basketball player Keith Appling has been arrested again on a charge of carrying a concealed weapon.

Detroit police Sgt. Michael Woody said Appling was arrested early Saturday after officers stopped a fast-driving Dodge Charger. Woody says officers saw Appling, a passenger, place a weapon under a seat.

The arrest comes days before Appling faces a hearing on weapons and drug charges from a May arrest outside a suburban Detroit strip club. The Friday hearing determines whether he goes to trial.

The Associated Press left a message for Cyril Hall, Appling's attorney in that case.

Appling played for the Spartans from 2010-2014. He had two 10-day contracts with the Orlando Magic this season and played for the Magic's Erie, Pennsylvania, affiliate in the NBA Development League.
