Ty Lawson, 27, was arrested for a 2nd DUI in Los Angeles in the early morning of July 14, 2015. Lawson is a
point guard for the Denver Nuggets. He was previously arrested for driving
under the influence in Denver less than 6 months ago. He allegedly has
2 other DUI arrests in Missouri and North Carolina within the past 10 years.
California Highway Patrol Officer states that Lawson was pulled over on Highway 101 and Melrose
Avenue for speeding. After failing a number of field sobriety tests, he
was booked and released on $5000 bail. His court date has been set for August 4.
This Los Angeles drunk driving arrest comes as Lawson still has 2 years
and $25.6 million left on his contract with the Denver Nuggets. Lawson's
off the court struggles have led to reports of the Nuggets potentially
releasing Lawson from the team.
