Al Jefferson Arrested for Drunk Driving, Charged with DWI

Former Celtics center Al Jefferson, the key piece in the trade that landed Kevin Garnett in 2007, was arrested on drunk driving charges on early Sunday morning. Jefferson, who was charged with fourth degree driving while impaired (a misdemeanor), scored a team-high 19 points with 11 rebounds in Minnesota’s 110-91 loss to the Blazers on Saturday night.

Jefferson was pulled over for speeding (he was going 56 mph in a 40-mph zone) and erratic driving. The trooper saw Jefferson change lanes without using a turn signal, and saw his car drifting to the left. After a field sobriety test, Jefferson was arrested and was given a blood test.

While police were not permitted to give out Jefferson’s blood-alcohol level, they did indicate that it was over the .08 limit.

Big Al was released from jail shortly after 4 a.m. and will be back in court for a hearing on April 23.

  1. [...] and he shot a pathetic 42.9% from the free throw line. On a personal note, he was also busted for drunk drivingĀ and will be suspended for two games. Shame, shame Mr. [...]
