NBA Star Ty Lawson Arrested

Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson was arrested early Tuesday for driving under the influence — his second DUI arrest this year, TMZ Sports reports.

Lawson was pulled over by police in Los Angeles for speeding on the 101 Freeway. Officers determined he showed signs of intoxication. After giving him a field sobriety test, officers took Lawson in around 2:30 A.M.

Lawson and his girlfriend, Ashley King, were leaving Le Jardin nightclub in Hollywood at the time of incident.

In January, police charged the athlete with a DUI as he traveled in Denver.

He remains in jail. Lawson’s bail is set for $5,000.
