Blood Test Shows Carmelo Anthony Drove at Nearly Twice Legal Limit

Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony’s blood alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit for driving under the influence when Denver police arrested him earlier this month, a CBS4 investigation found.

CBS4’s Brian Maass reported that Anthony’s blood alcohol level registered .148 percent, according to multiple sources familiar with the results of Anthony’s blood test. The legal limit for DUI in Colorado is .08 percent.
