    UNC's Lawson arrested


    CHAPEL HILL – - North Carolina point guard Ty Lawson was arrested today and charged with driving after consuming alcohol, violating a local noise ordinance and driving with a revoked license.

    A Chapel Hill police officer arrested Lawson, 20, at 2:33 a.m. on North Columbia St., in the heart of town. The officer stopped Lawson in a 2005 four-door Chevrolet with Maryland plates after hearing loud music coming from the car, said police Capt. Chris Blue.

    The officer suspected that Lawson had been drinking, conducted a field sobriety test and found probable cause to charge him, Blue said.

    Lawson was taken into custody, processed and released on a written promise to appear in court July 8.

    He had no comment when he was contacted by phone this morning.

    Yeah, he's said he wouldn't stay in the draft if he dropped past 20, but supposedly (FWIW) had a promise from the Nugs...I wonder if that's going to fall through.

    I'm surprised it doesn't read...

    "North Carolina point guard Ty Lawson, a potential draftee of the NBA's Indiana Pacers, was arrested today and charged with driving after consuming alcohol, violating a local noise ordinance and driving with a revoked license."

    I just saw this on espn.com and was thinking the same thing. I'd figure for sure it would mention how he had previously worked out for the Pacers. Well, I guess it's a good thing for the Pacers (not Ty, obviously) that it happened before the draft so we can weed him out. Yesterday, I was actually entertaining the thought of going after him if we were able to get an additional 1st round pick like Morway says we are trying to do.

    Haven't we "weeded" enough people out? (or, more accurately, "in"?)

    Hopefully my one assist is more than Tinsley is able to get in a Pacer's uniform this season.

    The kid made a mistake, hopefully he learns from this and it does not become a pattern of behavior. I would not mind still looking at him as our 41st pick at all. This might drop him into our laps.

    Here is the headline that can be found on the front page of the IndyStar website right now:

    "Pacers prospect charged with DUI"

    Talk about bad timing (and an equally disgusting offense). What an idiot.

    I don't think you have anything to worry about, he'll just shoot or turn it over.

    Exactly what I was going to say.

    The media will do anything to put the team down.

    Are you aware of what Herb Simon has been saying? The Pacers won't touch him even at 41.

    I am actually p*ssed that they made that the headline. Now I'm going to hear from everyone in my dumb*ss office about the Pacers player that got in trouble again. Man, we can't even bring guys in for a workout without something bad happening.

    I'm trying to reconcile that statement with these:

    I feel we are losing accountability as a whole society.

    I have little to no tolerence for that type of behavior.

    I am 100% responsible for my actions it is called accountability. I do not put myself into situations where I may get into trouble.
    The only thing that seems to make sense is that the first statement is about a person that you think could help out a team that you like, and the other statements are about a player on a team that you don’t like.

    Now that's a good headline. You know, if you were this guys agent wouldn't "keep your nose clean" be at the top of your list to talk to him about?

    Wow - you can certainly read between the lines. This was a simple report. Where did the Pacers get put down?

    I just called the Indianapolis Star's sports department to have them change the title of that artice since it was misleading.

    It is an AP article anyway, and the original title of it is "UNC player charged with DWI". I asked if they could change it to that to try and cut back on negative comments on the team and further bad media.

    They told me that an editor is going to the online desk to change it.

    Ha, the article is gone from the front page!
