Dallas Mavericks Guard Arrested for Public Intoxication

Looks like celebrations may have gotten out of hand for at least one member of the Dallas Mavericks. Deshawn Stevenson, shooting guard for the newly crowned NBA Champs, was arrested Tuesday night – two days after the Mavericks upset the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA finals. The ESPN story is available here and the Dallas Morning News story is available here.

In Texas, public intoxication is a Class “C” misdemeanor, which is punishable by a $500 fine. Any top Texas criminal defense attorney will know how to best defend a charge of public intoxication. Most Texas attorneys and DUI lawyers know that proving public intoxication is difficult because more often than not, police officers do not administer Standardized Field Sobriety Tests to people arrested for that offense.
