    Former Tech star Jarrett Jack arrested for DUI in GwinnettShareThisPrint E-mail .By Larry Hartstein


    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    New Orleans Hornets guard Jarrett Jack, who helped lead Georgia Tech to the 2004 NCAA title game, was arrested in Gwinnett County early Sunday on charges of DUI, speeding and failure to maintain his lane, police said.

    .Jack, 27, who has an Atlanta address, was stopped in a black Mercedes-Benz shortly after 4 a.m. for speeding on U.S. 78 westbound near McGee Road, Snellville police said. He was driving 66 in a 45 mph zone, police said.

    "The officer paced the vehicle, verifying that it was speeding, and observed the vehicle cross the center line and the fog line," Snellville Police Chief Roy Whitehead wrote in an email. "He stopped the vehicle and smelled an odor of alcoholic beverage coming from the driver, Jarrett Matthew Jack. He conducted field sobriety tests, which Mr. Jack failed."

    Because the police department's Intoxilyzer was not working, Jack was given the test at the Gwinnett County Jail, according to Whitehead. Jack registered a .079 at 5:38 a.m., 90 minutes after the traffic stop, according to Whitehead.

    "In general, alcohol dissipates from the system at approximately .02 grams per hour," Whitehead wrote. "Therefore, he would have been over the limit of .08 at the time of the driving infraction."

    Whitehead also noted that drivers can be charged with DUI-less safe if they register anything above .04 and are seen speeding and weaving.

    Jack was selected 22nd overall in the NBA draft after leaving Tech following his junior season. He was the sixth Yellow Jacket to break 1,000 points and 500 assists in a career. As a junior, Jack led Tech in scoring (15.5), assists (4.5), steals (1.8) and 3-point shooting (44.2 percent).

    New Orleans is his fourth NBA team. Jack, who backs up Chris Paul at point guard, is averaging 7.6 points and 2.8 assists.

    I cannot believe this!

    He's honestly one of the last guys I would expect to do something like this.

    The only test they have showed that he blew a .079. Under the limit. This charge should be dropped.

    Did you skim the article? It clearly states a driver can be charged if they have a .4 and are seen weaving and speeding.

    Regardless, the .79 was 90 minutes after the stop. He was clearly over the limit at the time he was pulled over.

    Wow, I liked Jack when he was here but good thing the Pacers didn't hold on to him. Something like this, especially if it would have happened in Indiana, would have killed any good will the team has built up in recent years.

    I don't think this makes him a "terrible person", but he has to be a lot smarter and refrain from putting himself in this kind of position. Have a sober ride or call a cab/limo. It's that simple.

    Never understood why someone would drive 21 MPH over the speed limit even if they have had 1 beer with dinner.

    See I don't drink at all (never really appealed to me) because even if I wanted to drink I probably wouldn't be aware how much alcohol is in my system if I were driving. I wouldn't take that risk

    And he's a pro athlete while he's not making CP3 money surely he could afford a taxi or someone to drive him everywhere isn't that a perk of a celeb?

    So when he was tested he was under the legal limit? Sounds kinda flimsy. Can they really say he had to have been over the limit because of the time that passed? I bet this one gets thrown out, not least of all because Jarrett has millions of dollars.

    Also, what does this mean? "drivers can be charged with DUI-less safe if they register anything above .04 and are seen speeding and weaving."

    All that said, what a dumbass. First for drinking and driving... hire a freakin driver. Second for speeding while drinking and driving. If there was ever a chance of him going back to the Pacers, it just dwindled quite a bit.

    Except there is no way to actually prove that. Everything else is just subjective reasoning. Barely admissible in court.

    Considering he was BARELY over the legal limit, I can't really judge him at all. I've definitely been in the same situation in the past but not been pulled over. I don't think that makes me a horrible person, just didn't use the best of judgement. Luckily I'm not a public figure for the world to bash on the internet.

    I don't know the laws in the state where this happened but typically:

    DWI = driving while intoxicated. BAL > state limit (0.08 in this case)

    DUI = driving under the influence. Doesn't really matter what the number is as long as it is greater than 0 and the officer's judgment was that said substance was influencing or impairing the driver.

    I guess it depends on who you ask. Ask someone that has lost a family member to a drunk driver and they might consider you a horrible person.

    Cant say I can agree with that. Driving while intoxicated is a moronic move to be made no matter the situation.

    I am baffled at how you can try to justify drunk driving, but to each their own. Bottom line any even if you are at .081, you are drunk, and that is unacceptable, at any level. Call a freaking taxi.

    Not saying I have not made mistakes, lord knows I have, but drunk driving is one of my biggest pet peeves. In today's society there is no excuse not to call a friend, or a taxi....

    What's crazy is that .079 is completely legal. And while I'm no expert, I don't think there's much difference in a .002 blood-alcohol level.
