LOS ANGELES (AP)—Los Angeles Clippers forward Zach Randolph was arrested for investigation of drunken driving early Monday, hours after his team’s 88-85 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Two California Highway Patrol officers saw a white Rolls-Royce weaving on Interstate 405 around 2:25 a.m., CHP Officer Tony Garrett said.
The car was traveling south in the Culver City area near west Los Angeles.
The officers pulled the car over and identified Randolph as its driver. Garrett said alcohol could be smelled inside the car. After conducting a field sobriety test, the officers arrested Randolph and took him to the Men’s Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles.
He was later released on $5,000 bail.
The team released a statement saying it would reserve comment until the facts of the case were reviewed. Randolph was scheduled to practice with the team Monday afternoon.
Randolph had 18 points and 10 rebounds in Sunday night’s game.

good move by the clipps... i imagine his court date and such will be after the season... so instead of losing him for a couple games next year due to a league suspension, by doing this hopefully they avoid the NBA suspension later or get a shorter one
