Lakers owner Jerry Buss arrested on DUI suspicion

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) – Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss was
arrested on suspicion of drunken driving early Tuesday morning.

The San Diego Union Tribune reports the 74-year-old Buss was arrested after
being pulled over by police for driving the wrong way on a downtown street in
Carlsbad shortly after midnight Tuesday morning.

Buss reportedly spent eight hours in jail and had a blood alcohol level of .08
or greater.

“Although I was driving only a short distance, it was a bad decision and I was
wrong to do it,” Buss said in a statement released by the Lakers. “It was a
mistake I will not make again.”
