|Mavs' Stevenson Arrested for Public Intoxication
|IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Dallas Mavericks guard DeShawn Stevenson has been arrested for public intoxication.
Police in suburban Irving, Texas, say Stevenson was arrested Tuesday night after reports of an intoxicated person walking through the grounds of an apartment complex. Police say Stevenson didn't know where he was and he was arrested after field sobriety tests.
He was released from jail Wednesday morning after posting bail. Mavericks spokeswoman Sarah Melton said Wednesday that the team had no comment on the arrest.
Stevenson is a 10-year veteran who played a key role for the Mavericks as they won their first NBA title against Miami.
