More details on the DeShields arrest

Zach Levine has some further details on what happened with Delino DeShields over the weekend:

DeShields was stopped at approximately 11:30 p.m. ET after allegedly driving the wrong way on a one-way street near the University of Georgia campus. He told Athens-Clarke County police that he was leaving a Kappa Alpha gathering. According to the police, he said he had consumed a sip of beer earlier in the night and consented to a breath test, which registered .076 BAC. The legal limit in Georgia for a driver under age 21 — DeShields turned 18 in August - is .02.

Upon later being taken to the police station, he registered a .092 and a .094 in an intoxication test.

Police found four open bottles of liquor in the car, a 2010 Cadillac Escalade registered to DeShields, leading to the charge of underage possession of alcohol. The third charge was for the one-way roadway violation.
