It's been an eventful 72 hours for DeShawn Stevenson. He won a title, dissed LeBron with a t-shirt, dissed LeBron by saying he was "classless" and partied hard.

And then he capped it off by getting arrested.

Via ESPN Dallas:

Dallas Mavericks shooting guard DeShawn Stevenson was arrested for public intoxication in Irving, Texas, on Tuesday night, two days after the franchise won its first NBA championship.

Irving police were called to the Grand Venetian apartment complex at about 10:30 p.m. CT after receiving a call to report an intoxicated person walking in the area. Officers reported that Stevenson, who does not live at the complex, appeared intoxicated and did not know where he was.

He was arrested without incident on the Class C misdemeanor charge based on the results of a sobriety test, officer's observations and his statements.

"They felt he was a danger to himself and others," Irving public information officer John Argumaniz said. "Basically, he was intoxicated to a point where he didn't feel comfortable letting him walk away or leave. They didn't have any other options at that point."

The Mavs said they weren't aware of the incident and declined comment.

Stevenson was just walking around an apartment complex wasted and didn't know where he was? I wonder if when he sobered up, he was like, "What, why is Abraham Lincoln tattooed on my neck?!?"

Stevenson will be an unrestricted free agent July 1. He played a role extremely well in Dallas as a tough defender, 3-pointer shooter and player willing to play any role. One being, "Guy that parties very hard after a championship" included.

Someone ALWAYS has to bring race into this. GROW UP!!!! 

Race was mentioned as a fact, not an excuse. Learn to comprehend what you're reading. I never said, "this only happened because he was black". If the "Birdman" from Denver was drunk outside of someone's house they'd probably call the cops too. My post wasn't about race, it was about perception. Lol @ "grow up". 


No comment on the other things brought up?

Stevenson was, and always will be a piece of crap.  From having someone else take his SATs, to the statutory rape of a 14 year old girl when he was in the NBA, to having a guy shot at his house in some sort of "Strippers Gone Wild" incident, the guy has zero class and is a crappy citizen.

Public Intoxication is probably the lowest level criminal offense that exists in any U.S. jurisdiction.  It is routinely thrown out after the first court appearance.  Let's all move along.  Nothing to see here.  But wait, did you hear about Lebron's comments to the media?  What an arrogant, selfish, egomaniac he is.

How much do you think he paid for that "5 Lincoln 5" tattoo? $.01 or $5.00? Either way, he was ripped off.

LMFAO!!!! I love it!!! Could not have happened to a better piece of trash!!

So you love the fact that he'll get a $200 ticket. Or the fact that Mark Cuban or anyone with the Mavs really cares. They just won the Championship and he was drunk as a skunk -- ON FOOT and not behind the wheel of a car. Maybe he needed to step outside and get some air and being a 6'6 black guy with $5 bill tatted across the front of your neck made people a little nervous -- and I don't blame them. I'm black and even I'd keep an eye on a dude looking like that just frolicking around my apartment. 


It's funny how it's ok to be that drunk in public if you're at a bar or club -- where money is being made by the state. But as soon as you're in the "free zone", you get arrested and forced to pay the state more money. Gotta love it.
