George Maloof Arrested on a DUI Charge

Maloof, like pretty much everyone who’s ever been popped on a DUI, says he wasn’t all that drunk. From the Sac Bee (which published an outstanding mug shot of the Kings’ part-owner): “Sacramento Kings part-owner George Maloof told The Bee that he had had four beers at a wedding and was pulling into his driveway late Saturday when a police officer arrested him on suspicion of drunken driving. ‘I didn’t feel I was intoxicated,’ Maloof, who runs the Palms Casino Hotel, said in a phone interview Monday from Las Vegas. His blood alcohol was 0.086, he said, barely over the 0.08 limit. Maloof was stopped by a traffic officer about 11:30 p.m., according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. He was later booked into the Clark County Detention Center on suspicion of the following charges, police said: driving under the influence of alcohol; speeding 20 to 21 mph over the posted speed limit; making an illegal turn; driving without a valid license; and not having proof of insurance.”

    Why did he not have a valid license and proof of insurance?

    @Hursty – the cop had been following him for awhile. Long enough to clock him @ 20 over the limit and watch him make an illegal turn.

    wow, apparently the driving drunk thing was the least of his problems that night.

    “speeding 20 to 21 mph over the posted speed limit; making an illegal turn; driving without a valid license; and not having proof of insurance”

    That must really suck to get booked AS You pull into your driveway. But I guess like someone else said, he must have been followed for awhile to see all those other charges being played.

    It’s Reke’s fault. Lil’ George is just so impressionable.

    This guy owns a casino and a basketball team – if he knows he’s going to be drinking, why not just hire a driver? Stupid.
