Warriors big man Marreese Speights was arrested early Tuesday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence, which carries with it a second-degree misdemeanor charge.

The unfortunate details, from Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group:

Speights was arrested at 3:31 a.m. ET and later submitted to two breathalyzer tests showing breath alcohol contents of .103 and .106, according to the incident log. Florida’s legal limit is .08.

Speights became involved in a traffic stop after an officer pulled him over due to a failure to yield right of way while pulling out of a driveway in a black 2012 Bentley, according to the incident log. The officer detected indicators of impairment, and Speights after agreeing to roadside field sobriety exercises was arrested and transported to a breath testing facility, according to the incident log.

Speights, who according to the incident report was cooperative, was booked at the Hillsborough County Orient Road Jail and later released on $500 bond at 11:47 a.m. ET, according to Tampa Police.

While this doesn’t appear to be as severe an offense as the one committed by the Suns’ P.J. Tucker that got him sentenced to jail time, it’s relatively terrible nonetheless.

Speights averaged 6.4 points and 3.7 rebounds in 12.4 minutes per game for the Warriors last season.
