Next in the news of athletes who are tricking off their careers….
For the second time this year, former UNC Tar Heel and current Denver Nuggets player, Ty Lawson finds himself on the bad side of the law. Here are the details via TMZ.
TMZ Sports has learned Lawson was pulled over by CHP for speeding on the 101 Freeway early this morning … and officers determined he showed signs of intoxication … so they gave him a field sobriety test.
Didn’t go so good for Lawson. He was arrested around 2:30 AM.
Cops say during the arrest, Lawson identified himself as an NBA player — and was carrying $6,000 IN CASH on his person.
Not so smart on the part of Lawson, who was arrested in January for the same thing. This latest incident may surely solidify his one-way ticket out of Denver, especially after they drafted Emmanuel Mudiay with the 7th pick in this year’s draft.
And would someone tell me why this guy was carrying $6,000 in cash?
