Connecticut basketball player suspended for failing sobriety test

Dallas residents may be interested in this news about a University of Connecticut basketball player who has been kicked off his basketball team due to failing a sobriety test. The 21-year-old man may also face a license suspension based on his charges, which include operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol, as well as others. Administrative License Revocation hearings, or ALR hearings, are the first chance you'll have to defend yourself and to protect your license in Texas, and with the right representation, you may be able to avoid the problems this young man may face in the near future.

On Sept. 9, a news release reported that the 21-year-old basketball player for the University of Connecticut has been charged with a DUI and has been suspended from his basketball team indefinitely. According to the police involved in the investigation, the man was pulled over near the Storrs campus. Police state that he failed his sobriety test, but did not release any information about why he had been pulled over.

The 21-year-old now faces charges including operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol, operating an unregistered motor vehicle, and operating a vehicle in violation of license classification. The 21-year-old player now has been removed from his basketball team indefinitely, and a UConn spokesman claims it is due to violating unspecified team rules.

Driving while intoxicated can lead to serious charges and injuries, but you have a right to protect yourself and your reputation. At the ALR hearing held by the Texas Department of Public Safety, you may be able to have a defense lawyer question your arresting officers for information about the reason for your traffic stop. With the right defense, your case could even be dismissed based on the evidence received.
