Pelicans’ Devonte Graham arrested for DWI, police say
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - New Orleans Pelicans guard Devonte Graham was arrested for driving while impaired early Thursday morning, according to jail records.
Graham, 27, was taken into custody in Raleigh, North Carolina around 3 a.m. by the state’s highway patrol.
Officials say Graham was traveling 63 mph in a 40 mph zone on Capital Boulevard when officers pulled him over. Graham “displayed signs of impairment and the investigating member formed the opinion that the driver was impaired by alcohol,” officials say.
Graham submitted to a breath test and blew a .11 BAC.
He was charged with speeding and DWI.
Graham was released on a $3,000 bond. His court date is scheduled for July 22.
Graham, a Raleigh native, is entering his fifth year in the NBA after being drafted 34th overall in 2018 by the Atlanta Hawks.
He was traded to the Charlotte Hornets in exchange for two second-round picks.
In Aug. 2021 Graham was traded to the Pelicans. On Dec. 15, Graham hit a 61-foot buzzer-beater to hoist the Pelicans over the Oklahoma City Thunder, the longest game-winning buzzer-beater in over 25 years.
