Report: Ty Lawson arrested for DUI

27 Comments

The Nuggets have three capable point guards on the roster in Ty Lawson, Jameer Nelson and the recently-drafted Emmanuel Mudiay.

It’s been believed by many around the league that Lawson would be traded at some point, due to a combination of issues both on and off the court that has the franchise wanting to move in another direction.

After a reported second arrest for DUI this year, the level of difficulty of doing so on the Denver side just increased significantly.

TMZ:

TMZ Sports has learned Lawson was pulled over by CHP for speeding on the 101 Freeway early this morning … and officers determined he showed signs of intoxication … so they gave him a field sobriety test.

Didn’t go so good for Lawson. He was arrested around 2:30 AM.

Lawson is still capable of producing at a high level, and averaged 15.2 points and a career-best 9.2 assists while starting 75 games for the Nuggets last season. Some team is going to get him for almost nothing, and he may prove to be a steal — if he can get these silly issues eventually sorted out.
