Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was arrested for DUI
What was arguably the worst loss of the season for the Detroit Pistons appears to have taken its toll on Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
The Pistons guard was arrested for a DUI early Wednesday morning, hours after the team blew a lead and lost to the Miami Heat, according to reports.
Caldwell-Pope was pulled over for driving 45 mph in a 25 mph zone, and an officer smelled alcohol. Caldwell-Pope submitted to a blood test at the police station, which registered 0.08.
On the surface, it seems as if Caldwell-Pope went out drinking after a depressing loss. The Pistons’ loss to Miami made it extremely difficult for them to make the postseason. They currently are 2.5 games behind the Heat and Pacers, who are tied for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Detroit won on Thursday but only has six games remaining to try making up that ground.
