Lamar has dodged jail time for the DUI charge he caught back in August of this year, he pleaded “NO CONTEST” . The former NBA star was sentenced to three years probation for the misdemeanor in a Los Angeles court, on Monday. He also agreed to undergo alcohol education courses in addition to paying $1,814 in court fees.
TMZ reports that the basketball forward is required to complete his alcohol education classes by June 9, 2014. Lamar’s driver’s license was taken away immediately following his refusal to take the BAC test after failing various field sobriety tests. He was initially pulled over just before 4am on August 30 for driving too slow at 50mph on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley.
Things maybe looking up for Lamar despite all of this Clippers coach Doc Rivers confirms that he is interested in signing Lamar and that they had a good conversation. I guess we will wait and see what develops.
