Zach Randolph Arrested on DUI Suspicion

by Ryne Nelson

There’s a blueprint for getting busted for drunk driving, and Zach Randolph followed it to the tee this morning. As TMZ reports, Randolph was…

1) Driving early in the morning. Check ( 2:25 a.m.).
2) In a flashy vehicle. Check (Bentley).
3) Unable to stay in one lane. Check.
5) Failing field sobriety tests. Check.
6) Reeking of alcohol. Game over.

Police spotted Randolph on the on the 405 Freeway after yesterday’s loss to the Lakers, and sent him to jail with a $5,000 bail.

Update: The Clippers have suspended Randolph for two games.

    This dude has a history of this. Clearly, he has an alcohol problem and needs some sort of treatment. And to lose his ability to drive.

  • tenorca

    If there was a dumbass tax, Zach Randolph would be bankrupt.

  • Coach Master

    wrecking as in what limited career he has left.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    To be fair, Ryne was hammered when he wrote this.

    Russ, for the win…….(Marv Albert voice) YES!!!!

  • niQ

    i don’t get it. why not just call a taxi.

  • Cizzo

    Zach is my homie he has a tendcy to get in a little trouble Zach will get it together hopefully David Stern will uderstand that Z-bo is still a young lad but he’s still stupid!

    Why didn’t he just get one of the 172 members of his posse to drive for him?

  • http://where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com B. Long

    Zach, when someone said that they saw a little Charles Barkley in your game, this is not what they had in mind.

    B.Long:Grizz or Dot Com?If Tracy Jordan were real and considerably more stupid,he’s be Z-Bo.

  • NACHOveli

    Finally Z-bo was arrested for taking too many shots. Whats with these spartan alumni getting DUI’s this season? (j-rich being the other)

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    Still young?! Dude is 27! He should know better. And drunk driving kills peope. I hope they come down hard on him. It’s not like it’s a dude that never gets in trouble or anything. He’s always doing something stupid.

    Russ, Ryne is always hammered and by his comments he appears to be 60% functional at all times, so that is not a excuse.

  • http://www.nba.com JE

    Someone should do a tally of how many NBA players got DUI’s this season. Of course, wait until it’s over, because there’s time for at least 3 or 4 more.

  • chef_shorty

    If this is how he celebrated Michigan State’s win to get into the final, I wonder what he’ll do if they win it all tonight.

    For three!!!!

    Slamonline is just not the same without Hollyhood. Get well soon.

  • Tuomas

    Here’s someone who reaaally needs a meeting with Charles Oakley.

  • Tuomas

    Having a drinking problem is one thing. Multiple DUIs, on the other hand… whoa.

  • Mr. Mackey

    Drinking and driving is mad, mmmkay. You shouldn’t drink and drive, mmmkay. Someone could get hurt, mmmkay.

  • Coach Master

    BETCAT has a reason to get hammered after yesterday.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Dunleavy probably ratted him out to the cops.

  • http://allanzuss@yahoo.com Mendel

    Any idea where he wqas going? Hope it was to get good head.

  • Mr. Mackey

    Russell, there is not reason to try to blame this on other, mmmmmkay? He did it to himself, mmmmkay?

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    I am honestly suprised that Zach doesnt do this more, after all, he plays for the Clippers and is Zach Randolph.

  • http://www.twitter.com/TheDiesel Anton

    All those missed threes late in games takes a toll on a man’s soul.

  • vtrobot

    Bosh can’t get DUIs nearly as well as Z-Bo can. Zach would tell him that to his face too. Cizzo, Zach gets into a LITTLE touble? Huh? At least he didn’t give the cops his playing card instead of a license like his old teammate Qyntel once did. Man, those Jailblazers knew how to keep it real.

  • http://sfdjilf.com Jukai

    The officer was Chris Bosh in a police outfit

  • http://sfdjilf.com Jukai

    holy crap, vtrobot just stole my thunder! I shoulda refreshed before I made the comment. Foiled again.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    Jukai, was Chris a lady cop ala Rupaul style? And if so, why didnt Zach just sing every idiot’s favorite song ‘Ms. Officer’ by lil wayne! That would have saved him.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    I’m surprised he doesn’t get pulled over for suspicion of driving while not intoxicated.

  • http://courtsidebasketball.blogspot.com/ stu

    no smoke billowing out of the windows when he rolled them down? z-bo, i thought i knew you. you’ve changed man.

    I wonder if he accidentally punched the cop in the face for trying to kiss him while he was smelling his breathe?

  • http://aol.com Jonesy McFly

    Z-Bo is a real goon… I remebered in high school here in indiana his senior year he got caught with like 3 chopperd(AK 47) and lie 2 hand guns… But he still won Mr Basketball and got his full ride to Michigan State. … So obvious he’s not that bad… lol

  • http://mindyourbusiness@getalife.com Allenp

    And underage kid got caught with three assault rifles and two handguns and was just fine?…

  • rav

  • bulldog

    Wow – His reputation is really in jeopardy now..Suspended by the Clippers, does it get any lower than that? Oh yeah, not getting suspended by the Clippers.

  • Dave

    If they take away his ability to drive it’ll jus be airball threes for the rest of his days. Damn.

  • http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/scoreboard Fred34

    Two words: F**KIN’ IDIOT

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    ”His troubles started at 14, when he shoplifted a pair of pants and had to serve 30 days in a juvenile detention center. In 1997, he was placed under house arrest for 30 days because of a conviction for battery. Two years later, he was in juvenile detention again, this time for selling a stolen gun.”

    not quite 5 guns but it’s not nothing either. i can see how an urban legend could transform one gun into 5.

  • http://mindyourbusiness@getalife.com Allenp

    Not just five guns, three assault rifles and two handguns.
    Come on now, that’s totally different.
    I live in one of the most violent cities in America, and if you’re a teenager with three choppas, you are NOT going to college. Period.
    You are headed straight for the block, do not pass Go, do not collect $200.

  • vtrobot

    I like how he asked people not to rush to judgement in the statement he gave to the press. Yeah, there might be a really good reason that he was drunk driving that we all don’t know about yet.

  • donlaker

    he came by but i wasnt there to sell him a bag of the cali kushberry, so i guess he settleed for some steel reserve 211 or som bluberry sky vodka

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    hehe, “do not pass Go, do not collect $200″. that was hilarious.
