Ty Lawson: I'm Going to Rehab

The NBA star was arrested for two DUIs so far, this year alone.

Published July 18, 2015

After suffering his second DUI arrest earlier this week, Denver Nuggets star Ty Lawson says he's finally going to get treatment. He revealed that he will be entering a rehab facility for the next month.


According to TMZ, the athlete recently had a court hearing addressing his first DUI this year, which occurred in Colorado back in January. He got off well as, instead of a SCRAM bracelet — which he would have been required to wear 24/7 — the judge ordered him to be on monitored sobriety.

Lawson's attorney announced during the hearing that his client will begin treatment at a rehab facility in Southern California beginning tomorrow.

Earlier this week, the NBA star was arrested for another DUI in L.A. He is due to appear in court for that case in August.
