Tampa police say the former Florida Gator was arrested early Tuesday morning and charged with driving under the influence. The Warriors said in a new release that the team was aware of the arrest but had no comment.
Analysis: According to a police report, an officer pulled over Speights' black Bentley shortly after 3 a.m. because he failed to yield the right of way while pulling out of a driveway. The officer reported that Speights seemed impaired and agreed to a field sobriety test. Police say Speights' blood-alcohol level was recorded to be 0.103 and 0.106 percent. Florida law considers a driver impaired at 0.08.
