Tim Hardaway charged with DUI

Various news organizations are reporting that former NBA star (and current Pistons’ assistant coach) Tim Hardaway was arrested last April in Beverly Hills for DUI with a BAC of 0.17.

ClickonDetroit states:

Tim Hardaway, who is entering his third season with the Pistons, is accused of drunken driving after police said his blood alcohol content was twice over the legal limit when an officer pulled him over in Beverly Hills.

The 5-time NBA All-Star was pulled over less than one block from his home and just down the street from the police station. The officer spotted Hardaway’s car along 13 Mile Road and Lasher Road.

Court records show his blood alcohol content was .17…

Court papers reveal officers pulled him over just a few houses from his front door. Beverly Hills police refused to comment about the open case.

It’s unclear where Hardaway was coming from or if anyone else was in the car when he was pulled over. Local 4 asked the Pistons organization when they became aware of the charges, and a spokesperson said, “We’re aware of the situation, but we’re not going to comment any further on it.”

Hardaway is fighting the charges but until then, his driving privileges are limited. Records show he “can travel for business purpose only” and is required to use “Soberlink with testing twice a day,” in which a camera records if he’s sober.

His attorney said since the case is still pending, he would not elaborate, but told Terry, “We are working towards a resolution” to possibly avoid trial.
