NBA player Delonte West has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors in Prince George's County, Maryland on weapons and traffic charges.

The Cleveland Cavaliers guard will plead guilty to carrying concealed weapons and transporting loaded weapons, according to the county state's attorney's office. Under the plea deal, West will complete community service and undergo psychological counseling while under court-supervised electronic monitoring.

Authorities say West was carrying two loaded handguns, a loaded shotgun and an 8 1/2-inch Bowie knife while speeding on a three-wheel motorcycle on the Capital Beltway last September.

Police say West, who lives in Brandywine, Maryland, was pulled over after cutting off an officer.
