WNBA Star Diana Taurasi Arrested On Suspicion Of DUI

Comments (0)

According to police in Phoenix, Diana Taurasi, leading scorer for the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury and former Connecticut Huskies star, was cited for driving under the influence only a few hours after her team’s win over the Seattle Storm on July 2.

At approximately 2:30 a.m., Taurasi was stopped for allegedly speeding, according to police spokesman Luis Samudio. The officer said that he detected the odor of alcohol on her and administered several field sobriety tests.

Taurasi was then taken to a mobile DUI van where she gave a blood sample, received a citation, and was released. Authorities did not know the results of the blood test.

The 27-year-old guard scored 22 points and blocked four shots in the July 1 game against Seattle, which the Mercury won 93-81. She is the leading fan vote-getter for the WNBA’s All-Star game, which will be held July 25.

In college, Taurasi led the Connecticut Huskies to three consecutive national championships. She was the 2003 and 2004 Naismith College Player of the Year and the 2003 Associated Press Player of the Year.
