Former UConn Huskies and current Phoenix Mercury star Diana Taurasi was cited for driving under the influence on Thursday morning in Phoenix, AZ.
Taurasi, a guard for the team, was pulled over at 2:30 a.m. in the area of Seventh Avenue and Camelback Road, allegedly for speeding and lane violations, police said.
A police officer conducted several field sobriety tests after he first detected the order of alcohol, the department said.
Officers then drew her blood in a Phoenix Police Mobile DUI van after she refused a breath test, Phoenix police said. She was cited and released.
Taurasi is currently leading the fan voting for the WNBA All-Star Game.
Obviously she made poor judgment when got behind the wheel and she will probably end having to do a lot of public relations to fix her image. She is a role model to a lot of young girls after all.
