Atlanta Hawks guard Tyler Dorsey was charged with driving under the influence of intoxicants over the weekend, according to a report from Atlanta-based KVAL.com.
The incident took place near Eugene, Ore., where Dorsey played collegiately.
“The vehicle came to a rolling stop, and then rolled forward again before coming to a complete stop,” the police report said, according to KVAL. “Upon speaking with Dorsey, the officer suspected impairment. There was an open container of alcohol on the passenger side floorboard. After an investigation, Dorsey was charged with DUII, Driving without Lights, and Open Container.”
Dorsey, 22, was selected by the Hawks in the second round (No. 41 overall) last summer.
He is 6-foot-4 and averaged 7.2 points and 1.4 assists in 56 games as a rookie. He also spent time with the Hawks’ G-League affiliate in Erie, Pa.
