Basketball star Carmelo Anthony was arrested for DUI early Monday morning (Apr. 14th), just hours after leading his team to a victory over the Houston Rockets. The Denver Nuggets Small Forward was pulled over in his Mercedes after he was spotted weaving in and out of lanes and failing to dim his high-beam headlights. He was in the car alone when he was pulled over at about 4 A.M., Denver Police said.
In a statement issued through his attorney, Anthony said he regrets the incident.
“Carmelo apologizes to his fans, the Denver community, his teammates and the Nuggets organization for the distraction this is causing them,” the statement said.
Anthony was taken into custody, booked and later released after consenting to a blood test. He has a court date scheduled for May 14th.
