Denver Nuggets player Ty Lawson was arrested on Tuesday morning for suspicion of DUI.
The California Highway Patrol tells HipHollywood that Lawson was traveling northbound on the 101 freeway when he was stopped for speeding. When pulled over, Lawson displayed signs of intoxication, so field sobriety tests were performed. Sadly, the baller did not pass. The 27-year-old was arrested at 2:29 a.m. and booked at the LA metro jail.
The baller, who was apparently leaving Le Jardin nightclub in Hollywood before the arrest, is still in custody. His bail has been set at $5,000.
Earlier on Monday evening, Lawson posted a photo of himself on Twitter with his buddy Kenneth at The Ritz Carlton, with the caption:
“Always a good time with my dude @KennethFaried35,” he wrote. And a good time they had.
