Before the Lakers fired their Head Coach Mike Brown today after only 5 games, their up-and-coming forward Deven Ebanks found himself popped for DUI in Los Angeles , California DUI attorneys are told.
A 2010 2nd round bench player from West Virginia, he was "lit up" by drunk driving police around 2:49 a.m. in the Hollywood area, a party area, lawyers who handle California dui cases say.
$5,000 was the bail posted. He also posted on his Twitter account Thursday afternoon encouraged his followers to celebrate a woman’s birthday Thursday night at Roxbury night club near Hollywood.
Ebanks’ court date is December seventh. No California DUI attorney has been announced yet, San Diego DUI lawyer Rick Mueller reports.
Ebanks’ 2nd incident is this DUI case. Prosecuting attorneys declined about a year ago to file charges against him last December after a woman claimed Ebanks sexually assaulted her 3 months previous.
Ebanks re-signed for 1 year at $1.4 million. He scored just 4 ppg in 24 games of last season. Recently, his 2.5 points ppg is all there is as 1 of the Lakers’ first players off the pine.
