Default James Posey Arrested.

(AP) - Miami Heat forward James Posey was arrested early Monday on a drunken driving charge after an officer pulled him over for stopping in the middle of a road.

Posey had stopped his car on a double-lane Miami Beach road, talking to occupants of other vehicles and pedestrians, police said.

Once out of the car, Posey displayed "bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, and an odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath," the police report said. The player also was unsteady on his feet and swayed while standing, police said.

I guess he was excited Wade returned.

Professional athletes drinking enough to get pretty wasted is really a good decision.

Of course, guaranteed contracts ensure that they can do pretty much whatever the crap they want. Poo. No incentive to take care of themselves to perform best at the job when they've already got tens of millions locked up.

Unlike most people, the bright side is that he can just hire someone to drive his ass around while while his license is suspended. I've had friends get DUI's though, and it's a pain in the ass. Can't drink during the holidays for a while.

*Side note* The cop apparently wasn't a basketball fan.

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Florida Panthers goalie Ed Belfour was arrested at a popular South Beach bar early Monday after a scuffle with a police officer.

Belfour and teammate Ville Peltonen were at the bar when security guards from the club asked police to make Belfour leave, police said.

The 41-year-old goaltender from Carman, Man., refused and walked towards the officer "in a fighting stance" and pushed him, a Miami Beach police report said.

Belfour pulled away from the officer trying to arrest him and grabbed his shirt. Belfour then fell forward on the ground, kicking and refusing to place his hands behind his back, the report said.

Belfour had slurred speech, blood shot eyes and smelled of alcohol, police said. He was charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting an officer without violence.

Peltonen, 33, was charged with criminal mischief after he broke a metal pole off a fire rescue truck parked in the area, a police report said.

Belfour is being held at Miami-Dade County Jail on $1,500 bond. Peltonen is being held on $500 bond.

While playing for the Dallas Stars in 2000, Belfour pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest following a scuffle with a security guard at an upscale hotel. He was sentenced to two years' probation and a $3,000 fine.

The Panthers, who missed the NHL playoffs, completed their schedule Saturday with a loss to the Hurricanes in Raleigh, N.C. Belfour did not play in the game.
