Denver Nuggets’ Ty Lawson, 27, was arrested early Friday morning (Jan. 23) for his 2nd DUI.

The point guard was stopped at 1:19 a.m. Friday while driving 61 mph in a 35 mph zone.

The police officer took note that Lawson’s “breath had a strong odor of an unknown alcoholic beverage, balance was swaying/stumbling, eyes were bloodshot/watery.”

The former North Carolina Tarheel has been averaging 16.7 points and 9.9 assists per game, the best stats of his career since coming into the NBA in 2009.

The Nuggets play the Boston Celtics tonight. However, it is unclear whether or not Lawson will start.
