Carmelo Caught by Cops

According to a story reported on AOL News, Denver Nuggets all-star Carmelo Anthony was arrested for a DUI charge. The NBA superstar was pulled over early Monday morning when his car was seen weaving and Melo failed to dim his lights. No fines or suspensions have been issued by the league as of this report.

More from the story:

Detective Sharon Hahn said Anthony, who was alone in the car, failed a series of sobriety tests. He was ticketed and released at the scene, but Hahn did not know how he got home. Denver police don't jail DUI suspects and Anthony was no exception, Hahn said.

Anthony is due in court May 14.

Mark Warkentien, the Nuggets' vice president of basketball operations, said the team was aware of the situation but declined comment.

Anthony apologized through his attorney, Dan Recht.

"Carmelo apologizes to his fans, the Denver community, his teammates and the Nuggets organization for the distraction this is causing them," Recht said.

He said Anthony consented to a blood test, but results won't be available for about two weeks.

In the meantime, "Carmelo will try to stay focused on his family and his team," Recht said.
