Andres Nocioni Nabbed for DUI, Sorry

Nocioni was popped for DUI in the wee hours yesterday, and he and the Kings released the obligatory apology: “Sacramento Kings forward Andres Nocioni has apologized for his arrest early this morning on suspicion of drunk driving. In a statement released by the Kings this afternoon, Nocioni says, ‘I made a mistake and I’m very sorry for my lapse in judgment.’ Nocioni, 29, was arrested by Sacramento police and booked into Sacramento County Jail at 3:30 a.m., a posting on the Sacramento County Jail Web site shows. He was released this morning on $1,482 bail.”

    apparently its pretty tough to play for the Kings..

    Seems like players need to take this more seriously. I’m sure at some point the L will put some heavier ‘automatic’ suspensions and/or fines for DUI’s and other seemingly regular occuring offenses that can easily be avoided.

    Should he be suspended if he was drinking one of the L’s “beverage” sponsors???
