Nuggets' Anthony Arrested For Suspicion Of DUI

Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony was arrested early Monday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence, Denver police said.

Anthony was driving south on Interstate 25 at around 4 a.m. when he was pulled over and taken into custody. Denver police said he was driving a silver Mercedes and was stopped for failing to drive in a single lane and failing to dim lights. Several Denver media outlets reported that he was given a Breathalyzer test.

“We are aware of the situation with Carmelo Anthony,” the Nuggets said in a statement, adding that they are gathering information and have no further comment.

Anthony’s lawyer confirmed that the forward was released on bond later Monday morning and a summons appearance was scheduled for May 14.

“He cooperated by consenting to a blood test, the results of which will not be available for approximately two weeks,” attorney Dan Recht said. “There was no accident and no one was hurt.”
