Former Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas has been ordered to teach fifth graders as a part of his community service according to TMZSports.

The three-time All Star was arrested last June and was charged with transporting more than 100 pounds of dangerous fireworks in a speeding vehicle.

Arenas agreed a plea bargain with the judge and was given 24 months probation, a $10,000 fine and 10 hours of community service.

TMZSports has now learned that the community service will involve teaching fifth graders about firework safety. 

Arenas last played in the NBA for the Memphis Grizzlies in 2012 and played last year for the Shanghai Sharks in China.

He played for the Washington Wizards between 2003 and 2010, earning three All-Star appearances. 

However he was suspended in 2010 for storing unloaded firearms in his locker.

This was against both NBA rules and DC laws, Arenas was then convicted for the crimes and spent 30 days in a halfway house.

The guard was hoping to reignite his career in China, however his team missed the playoffs last year despite good personal performances from Arenas.

It is unclear when Arenas will fulfil his community service.
