Popular Basketball Player Arrested for DUI

A popular basketball player in Nebraska was arrested last week on suspicion of DUI. As a result, he may be banned from playing in any remaining games this season.

The starting center was sitting behind the wheel of his vehicle, which was on and in park, asleep. When officers saw him sleeping there, they woke him up and realized that he had been drinking. Officers did a breathalyzer test and found that his blood-alcohol level was 0.103, well above the legal limit. He was charged on suspicion of driving under the influence. After a quick discussion with the state prosecutor's office, the player has accepted a reduced charge of reckless driving in exchange for a guilty plea.

Fans of the basketball team are anxiously waiting to hear whether he will play in the championship game scheduled next month. The coach has the final say in what his punishment will be.

If you were arrested for DUI with a high blood alcohol concentration, it is important that you seek help from an experienced Orange County DUI lawyer. Don't wait to contact the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry to get the legal help you need.
