When Carmelo Anthony was arrested a couple of weeks ago for DUI, he wasn’t just a little buzzed. No, Melo was tanked which isn’t surprising considering his team totally tanked the postseason. Turns out Anthony’s blood alcohol level was .148, according to CBS4 reporter Brian Maass. The legal limit in Colorado where the arrest occurred is .08. Carmelo claims that he only drank “two glasses of red wine,” but unless those “glasses” were actually pitchers of red wine then we think he’s full of crap. However, Carmelo’s attorney thinks the news about Carmelo is inconsequential because Carmelo apologized for Carmelo’s actions and the whole situation is now behind Carmelo. Carmelo. Carmelo. Carmelo.
We received notice that Carmelo’s blood test came back over the legal limit. This is old news in that Carmelo has admitted from the beginning that he had been drinking and driving and should not have been,” Anthony’s attorney, Dan Recht, said Responding to an inquiry from CBS4. “Carmelo has said he will take responsibility for his actions and he does. Carmelo continues to be deeply disappointed in himself, as (he) has said before. Carmelo’s actions that night were completely out of character and something he has never done before.”
According to attorneys and police officers, a first-time offender in Colorado will typically lose their driver’s license for at least three months when their blood alcohol level exceeds the legal limit for DUI.
Guess that means Anthony’s driving days in Denver could be over, both on and off the court.
