Well if there’s one thing that you can appreciate about the Boston Celtics so far this season it is their pleasant off court behavior. No DUI’s, no bar fights, or other off court incidents aside from the small altercation between Glen Davis and a friend in the preseason. Unfortunately former Celtics center Al Jefferson can not say the same. According to multiple sources Jefferson was picked up for driving under the influence of alcohol at around 2am this morning.
The only sources available are Darren Wolfson’s Twitter page and the web booking log from Hennepin County, MN, and while it’s possible this is another Al Jefferson, it sure appears to be the one who plays (now part time, apparently) for the Timberwolves. He’s not having a great season and Coach Kurt Rambis is really messing with his playing time, but we doubt this will land him a suspension this season because the court date is not until April 23.
I guess you really can’t blame him right? He probably has nothing better to do with his life than drive around Minnesota intoxicated during the early hours of the morning. After all, his team has no shot of competing in the Western Conference this year, his playing time is down, and he missed the all star cut after making it the previous season.
Celtics fans, do we still wish we had him on our team now? I do have to be quite honest though, I didn’t expect a guy of Al’s nature to pull something like this. I wouldn’t be as surprised if it was a guy like Ron Artest or Delonte West that pulled something of this caliber. Come on Al, get your head on straight!!!
