If Ronnie Brewer finds his way on to an NBA roster next season he could start the season with a suspension.
Brewer was arrested on a driving under the influence charge in Beverly Hills last month, reports the Associated Press (via ESPNChicago.com). Brewer has pled not guilty (a common first step in California DUIs), however prosecutors say he had a blood alcohol level of 0.15 percent, nearly double the state’s legal limit. Brewer entered his plea through his attorney.
Brewer played 23 games with the Rockets last season before being cut loose. He was picked up by the Bulls near the end of the season but played just two minutes in one game for them.
The 29-year-old swingman out of Arkansas is trying to find a team to play with next season, although most likely he is a late August, roster round out pickup. At best.
Any suspension to start the season would not help his cause.
