Tom Chambers, former Phoenix Suns player and current Phoenix Suns broadcaster, was arrested Saturday, December 7th and charged with DUI.
Apparently, Chambers was on his way home from the Pac-12 Championship Game Saturday night when his vehicle was seen swerving into other lanes, including the bicycle lane. When questioned, he admitted to the police that he had had a few drinks at the game. He also had two opened bottles of beer in the car and a passenger. Arizona law states that any person in a vehicle cannot be in possession of an open bottle of alcohol.
The report says that Chambers refused a field sobriety test. In Arizona, you have the right to refuse a field sobriety test, but it doesn’t mean that you will avoid arrest or a charge of DUI. In this case, Chambers eventually was required to submit to a blood test…the results are pending.
According to reports, Chambers was also “belligerent” with the officers on the scene. He was arrested and booked on several charges.
