Report: Ty Lawson Arrested for Second DUI This Year

NBA point guard was pulled over for speeding in Los Angeles.

Published July 14, 2015

Ty Lawson has been arrested for driving under the influence for the second time in seven months.

According to TMZ Sports, the Denver Nuggets point guard was arrested for DUI in Los Angeles around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday morning after speeding on the 101 Freeway.

Lawson reportedly failed a field sobriety test after his vehicle was pulled over. He is already facing a DUI charge in Denver after committing the same offense in January.

Ironically, TMZ Sports actually spoke to Lawson and his girlfriend as they were leaving the Le Jardin nightclub in Hollywood, moments before they got on the freeway.

Lawson averaged 15.2 points and 9.6 assists for the Nuggets last season.
