The Detroit Pistons confirmed a television report that guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving early Wednesday morning in Auburn Hills, Mich.
WDIV in Detroit reported the arrest Thursday night after the Pistons beat the Brooklyn Nets 90-89. The Pistons said they were aware of the incident.
The arrest occurred around 2:50 a.m. Wednesday, when Caldwell-Pope was pulled over driving 45 mph in a 25 mph zone. According to the report, a police officer walked up to the car, smelled alcohol and put Caldwell-Pope through sobriety tests before arresting him.
The police report stated Caldwell-Pope was "very cooperative" and his blood-alcohol content was 0.08, resulting in a ticket for DUI.
Caldwell-Pope scored 12 points in 37 minutes Thursday and is averaging 14.1 points in 71 games this season.
Caldwell-Pope will be a restricted free agent after this season and could face further discipline by the NBA, though any punishment likely would occur next season.
