Mavericks Guard DeShawn Stevenson Arrested For Public Intoxication

Dallas Mavericks' guard DeShawn Stevenson was on top of the world on Sunday night after his team defeated the Miami Heat to win the 2011 NBA Championship.  Now he finds himself behind bars.

Via Inside Hoops:  

Dallas Mavericks guard Deshawn Stevenson was arrested for public intoxication in Irving, Texas, on Tuesday night, two days after the franchise won its first NBA championship.

Irving Police were called to the Grand Venetian Apartment Complex at about 10:30 p.m. CT after receiving a call to report an intoxicated person walking in the area.  Officers reported that Stevenson, who does not live at the complex, appeared intoxicated and did not know where he was.

He was arrested without incident on the Class C misdemeanor charge based on the results of a sobriety test, officer's observations and his statements.

"They felt he was a danger to himself and others," Irving public information officer John Argumaniz said.  "Basically, he was intoxicated to a point where he didn't feel comfortable letting him walk away or leave.  They didn't have any other options at that point."
