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.”
