Jarrett Jack Arrested
Backup Hornet point guard Jarrett Jack was arrested and charged with drunken driving early Sunday morning in Atlanta. The 27 year old was pulled over by law enforcement after weaving in and out of lanes and going 66 mph in a 45 zone.
After failing a sobriety test, he was taken to Gwinnett County jail. There, he received a breathalizer test and was measured just under the legal limit of .08. However, this was over an hour after Jack was pulled over by police.
The New Orleans Hornets released a short statement today on the issue:
“This is a matter we take very seriously and will address the situation as our knowledge of the facts develops.”
Jack’s play has been up and down since being acquired by the Hornets in a November trade. In his last five outings, his play was solid, averaging close to 12 points a game while playing nearly 22 minutes per contest. He is expected to be at Hornets practice tonight, the first one since the all-star break. He could face discipline by the Hornets and/or the NBA.
