Former star player for the Houston Rockets, Steve Francis, was apprehended on suspicion that he was operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol (DUI), a November 22 report for The Washington Post revealed.
The 39-year-old basketball star was driving a vehicle with excessive speed on November 19 when police stopped him. Francis was reportedly clocked doing 88 mph on a road with a 65 mph speed limit. Police indicated that they detected signs of alcohol intoxication, and that Francis declined a field sobriety test. Francis, who was also charged with a felony retaliation, is expected to face burglary-related charges in Florida after a June incident where he was suspected of seizing valuables inside a vehicle parked at a restaurant.
