DeShawn Stevenson Arrested For Public Intoxication
Just two days since winning a NBA Championship over the Miami Heat, and Dallas Mavericks guard DeShawn Stevenson was arrested in Irving, Texas for public intoxication last night.
According to reports by ESPN:
Dallas Mavericks shooting guard DeShawn Stevenson was arrested for public intoxication in Irving, Texas, on Tuesday night, two days after the franchise won its first NBA championship.
Irving police were called to the Grand Venetian apartment complex at about 10:30 p.m. CT after receiving a call to report an intoxicated person walking in the area. Officers reported that Stevenson, who does not live at the complex, appeared intoxicated and did not know where he was.
He was arrested without incident on the Class C misdemeanor charge based on the results of a sobriety test, officer’s observations and his statements.
Stevenson was released on $475 bond at 5:30 a.m. local time Wednesday.
Just for the record, DeShawn Stevenson is the same Dallas Mavericks player that was seen wearing a “How’s My Dirk Taste?” t-shirt on Monday.
This guy obviously knows how to have a good time.
It’s not everyday that you win a NBA championship. In fact, most NBA players never win one. You can’t fault Stevenson for enjoying the success.
We doubt this arrest will be more than a slap on the wrist.
Party on, DeShawn. Party on…but try to keep the cops out of it.
