Prosecutors want alcohol monitoring for Nuggets’ Ty Lawson
DENVER (AP) — Colorado prosecutors want Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson to use an alcohol monitoring device after he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence for a second time this year.
Lawson was arrested in Los Angeles Tuesday and is scheduled to stand trial in a Denver DUI case next month.
After his January arrest in Denver, Lawson was ordered not to drink alcohol or violate laws as part of his bond. Prosecutors now are asking a judge to require him to use a device, such as an ankle bracelet or a home breath tester, that monitors the body for alcohol.
A judge could rule on the request Friday when Lawson is due in court for a hearing.
A spokeswoman for his agent didn’t return a call seeking comment.
