Ty Lawson is getting the help he needs. The NBA star announced that he is going to rehab—while he was in court answering to his second DUI bust this year.
Reports TMZ Sports:
NBA star Ty Lawson says he’s finally getting treatment — entering a rehab center for the next 30 days … after his 2nd DUI arrest this year.
Lawson appeared in court in Denver moments ago for a hearing on his DUI arrest in Colorado back in January … where a judge ordered him to be on monitored sobriety, instead of a SCRAM bracelet.
What that means is instead of having to wear an ankle bracelet 24/7 which constantly monitors the user’s blood alcohol level, he’ll have to routinely blow into a stationary B.A.C. monitoring device.
During the hearing, Lawson’s lawyer also announced that he will begin treatment at a rehab center in Southern California beginning tomorrow.
Lawson’s recent arrest was his fourth for DUI. Take jumpers, not (alcohol) shots, sir.
