Former Duke star Redick arrested for DUI
DURHAM, North Carolina (Ticker) - Life after Duke has turned infamous for J.J. Redick.
According to a report by television station WTVD, the former Blue Devil star was arrested early Tuesday morning for driving while impaired.
Citing a police report, WTVD said that the Atlantic Coast Conference's all-time leading scorer was arrested shortly after 1:00 a.m. EDT after Redick committed an illegal U-turn to avoid a police checkpoint.
An officer followed Redick and reported a strong smell of alcohol on Redick's breath and glassy eyes when he was pulled over.
Redick, who was released on a $1,000 bond, is scheduled to appear in a Durham court on July 17.
The 2006 Wooden Award winner, Redick averaged 26.8 points and made 139 3-pointers as the Blue Devils went 32-4 this past season. He is expected to be a first-round pick in the NBA draft on June 28.
