WASHINGTON -- Cleveland Cavaliers guard Delonte West pled guilty to weapons and traffic charges stemming from his arrest last September, according to a report in the Washington Post.

The judge in Prince George's County Circuit Court sentenced West to eight months of electronic monitoring and home detention, two years of probation, 40 hours of community service and psychological counseling. He will be allowed to attend practices, home games and away games, the paper said.

West was indicted on two counts of carrying a dangerous weapon, two counts of carrying a handgun, two counts of transporting a handgun, one count of reckless driving and one count of negligent driving.

West, 26, faced up to three years in jail for each weapons charge and a $2,500 fine per offense.

In September, he was arrested following a traffic stop on his motorcycle for allegedly carrying a 8.5-inch Bowie-style knife, a 9mm Beretta, a Ruger .357 and a shotgun inside a guitar case that was hanging on his back.

During the 2008-09 season, West left the Cavaliers during training camp to be treated for what he later said was bipolar disorder, according to The Cleveland Plain Dealer at the time.

The St. Joseph's product, a six-year pro, missed the first three games of the 2009-10 season before returning and averaging 8.8 points and 3.3 assists in 60 regular season games for the club.
