Charlie Bell of the Warriors Showed Up in Court For His DUI Hearing ... Legally Drunk

Charlie Bell, the former Michigan State basketball star who was allegedly stabbed by his wife earlier this year, showed up in court Thursday for a DUI hearing with a blood alcohol content above the legal limit.

Former Michigan State Spartan and Flint native Charlie Bell spent hours in custody Thursday after showing up to court legally drunk for a hearing on his drunken driving case.

Bell, now 32 and with the Golden State Warriors, was arrested in Flint Township Oct. 21 for drunken driving, driving on a suspended license and failing to stop at a stop sign. That case was set to be resolved Thursday morning, in Genesee County’s 67th District Court, until Bell blew a reported .09 during a pre-scheduled alcohol assessment. The legal limit is .08.

Bell, 32, played 19 games last year with the Warriors, and he’s slated to make $4 million with the team this year. [ABC 12 via Guyism]
