Ben Wallace Charged With Drunk Driving, Weapons Offense

It was a rough weekend for Ben Wallace, who was booked on drunken driving charges, and for the unlawful carrying of a concealed weapon. Reports the Detroit News: “Wallace, 37, of Bloomfield Hills was pulled over about 3 a.m. Saturday behind the wheel of a 2007 Cadillac Escalade, township police said. Wallace was arrested without incident for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. A search of the vehicle found an unloaded pistol in a backpack in the passenger compartment, police said. At the police station, Wallace was given a breathalyzer test, which showed he had a blood alcohol count above the .08 level considered intoxicated. The reading was not released by police. Wallace was arraigned Saturday in front of Bloomfield Hills 48th District Court Magistrate Judith Holtz on the OWI charge, a 93-day misdemeanor, and the unlawful carrying of a concealed weapon, a five-year felony. He was released to a family member on $5,000 personal bond after the arraignment and is scheduled back in court for a pre-exam conference at 9:30 a.m. on Oct. 3.”

    WTF? I didn’t see that coming from Big Ben…I wonder what his actual BAC was…

    Me neither, if it happened like 7 years ago when he was with the Pistons I wouldn’t have been surprised tho.

    When Big Ben cross-examines anyone on the stand (assuming he represents himself), will they play the bell sound anytime he makes a case-shattering point?

    What is it with these NBA guys that whenever they get pulled over for being drunk or stoned there is always a firearm somewhere in the car?

    I’m thinking the officer who made the arrest must have some real balls. Big frickin’ Ben, drunk, with a gun at 3 AM. I would’ve called for backup.
