SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Phoenix forward P.J. Tucker was charged with 'extreme drunken driving' two months before he signed a three-year, $16.5 million contract - $12.7 million guaranteed - with the Suns.
Scottsdale police say Tucker had a blood alcohol level of .222 percent nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08 for operating a vehicle in Arizona.
Tucker's Mercedes Benz was pulled over by a Scottsdale police officer on May 10. The police report says Tucker's speech was slurred and eyes were bloodshot, and he nearly fell over during the sobriety test.
