On August 22, Renaldo Balkman, reserve forward for the Denver Nuggets, was arrested in Florida on suspicion of driving under the influence.
According to a police report from the Hillsborough County, Florida Sheriff’s Office, the 25-year-old basketballer was arrested by police from Temple Terrace, Florida at approximately 4 a.m. after refusing to submit to a blood-alcohol test.
Balkman posted $500 bond and was released.
Mark Warkentien, an executive for the Nuggets, said that the team was aware of the arrest but would not comment further “out of respect for the legal process.”
Balkman, who has only been with the team for one season, averaged 5.0 points and 3.8 rebounds last season.
