DJ Mbenga Was Arrested for Public Intoxication

DJ Mbenga hasn’t been able to find another NBA gig since the Dallas Mavericks waived him earlier this month, and to make matters worse, he was recently booked for public intoxication. Per WFAA, which saw the police report: “The document says Mbenga was attempting to exit the Buzzbrews Kitchen at 4 a.m. Tuesday as a pair of Dallas police officers were walking in. The 7-foot Center put his palm on one one’s chest and said, ‘You move out of my way.’ The officer stopped and responded, ‘You don’t touch police, let alone make that statement.’ The incident report then says Mbenga said, ‘You want to go? I do what I want, so you move out of the way!’ The officers smelled alcohol on the 32-year-old’s breath, who also had ‘unsteady balance’ and bloodshot eyes. Mbenga was escorted out of the restaurant but continued to argue with the officers. The police report says he was cuffed and failed three of six field sobriety tests. He was then taken to jail for public intoxication. The report says a witness told police he saw Mbenga act aggressively toward both the staff and a woman who he arrived with at the restaurant. [...] The incident report says Mbenga told officers that he was a former Mav who was ‘supposed to go sign with the (Toronto) Raptors’ before they took him to the detox center. “
