DeShawn Stevenson arrested for public intoxication
Mavericks guard DeShawn Stevenson was arrested for public intoxication on Tuesday night in Irving, Texas, according to multiple reports.
According to ESPNDallas.com, Irving police were called to an apartment complex at 10:30 p.m. local time. Stevenson, who did not live at the complex, reportedly appeared intoxicated and did not know where he was.
"They felt he was a danger to himself and others," Irving public information officer John Argumaniz told ESPNDallas.com. "Basically, he was intoxicated to a point where he didn't feel comfortable letting him walk away or leave. They didn't have any other options at that point."
Stevenson was released on $475 bond on Wednesday.
Stevenson averaged 7.0 points in 17.2 minutes during the Mavs' six-game series win against the Heat in The Finals. He is set to become a free agent this summer. The often-vocal shooting guard had found his way into the news since Dallas' Finals win by wearing a shirt that asked "Hey LeBron! How's my Dirk taste?", a reference to Shaq's legendary rip on Kobe Bryant.
He also called Heat players "actors" during the Finals for their ability to draw fouls. He also called Heat players "classless" for how they acted throughout the season and for making fun of Dirk Nowitzki's illness during The Finals.
