Paul Pierce was handcuffed early Sunday morning in Las Vegas after being pulled over for erratic driving. Pierce apparently did not apply his turn signal as he switched lanes, prompting a Las Vegas police officer stop Pierce in his white BMW.
Pierce emerged from the car a little agitated and was handcuffed on suspicion of DUI. He passed a field sobriety test and blew a blood-alcohol level of below .08 on the Breathalyzer test. He was not arrested.
The Celtics captain was not written up for his traffic violation. A valet was called to take Pierce’s car and a cab was called to take Pierce to his destination.
Should Paul Pierce be disciplined? I may be biased, but I don’t see a big deal with a routine traffic stop. He wasn’t drunk but was just stupidly agitated at a police officer. He didn’t face charges in real life, so why should he be punished by the Celtics or NBA? We will see what happens…
