JV charged with DUI
 
Quote:


The idle Toronto Raptors made news away from the court on Monday.

Second-year centre Jonas Valanciunas has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, having been stopped in Wasaga Beach, Ont., after reportedly being spotted with open beer bottles while travelling through a drive-thru.

Police say officers located the vehicle at a home, where they arrested Valanciunas alleging he was under the influence of alcohol while driving.

Valanciunas is charged with having greater than 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood.

He is to appear in court in nearby Collingwood on April 22.

“We were made aware this morning of the incident involving Jonas Valanciunas and are disappointed he has put himself in this situation,” the Raptors stated in a news release Monday night.

“We take this matter very seriously as we have the highest expectations for all members of our organization. At this time we are continuing to gather information and we will comment further when appropriate.”

Valanciunas, 21, is averaging 11 points and 8.6 rebounds in 76 games this season.

If this is true, he's an idiot. I don't care too much about him as a person but this is just stupid given how much he's helping the team lately.

Oh dear what a dumb thing to do. Thankfully no one was hurt.

Just hope this doesn't screw us in the playoffs.

Incredibly stupid, I expected better of him.

To be fair though, I don't think I've ever seen anyone driving sober in Wasaga Beach.

Obviously stupid thing to do, but this whole story is weird was he even really driving under influence ? "Car was found at home" "Opened beer bottles" . That's so reaching... wouldn't be surprised if he actually didn't break a law.

"Police say they began investigating after a report that a vehicle went through a drive-thru with open beer bottles visible."
