Tom Chambers, the former NBA player who starred in Phoenix and Seattle, was arrested for DUI Saturday in Scottsdale, Arizona, and the details are rather ugly. From the Arizona Republic:
When asked to perform a sobriety test, Chambers refused, saying, “I can’t even do the nose thingy-muh-bobber sober.”
During a search of Chambers’ vehicle, one of the officers noticed two opened, still cold Michelob Ultra Light beers within reach of the driver’s seat, according to the report.
The officers handcuffed Chambers after he attempted to walk back to his vehicle, saying: “I know your boss” and “After all I do for Scottsdale PD,” the report said.
Chambers, 54, is currently a Suns broadcaster, and surely the organization will give some thought to firing him after his terrible decision to drink and drive.
Best known for this dunk,
Chambers averaged over 17 ppg for 10 of his 16 seasons in the NBA. In 1990, Chambers averaged 27.2 ppg and along with point guard Kevin Johnson, led the Suns to the Western Conference Finals against the Trailblazers. Portland prevailed, 4-2. [via Arizona Republic]
