The online jail log confirmed that Kemp was charged in an investigation for shooting from a moving car shortly before 6 p.m. Wednesday.
The Pierce County courthouse schedule indicates that Kemp, 53, is scheduled to appear in court Thursday afternoon.
Kemp was selected six times for the All-Star Game and played with the SuperSonics between 1989 and 1997. He reached the NBA Finals in 1996, losing to the Chicago Bulls. He also played for Cleveland, Portland and Orlando.
