    Timberwolves' Jefferson Arrested For DWI

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO)
    - A Minnesota Timberwolves star isn't just having trouble on the court.

    Forward Al Jefferson was arrested at 3 a.m. Sunday morning for driving while impaired.

    Jail records state an initial court date has been set for April 23 for a fourth-degree DWI.

    The DWI arrest occurred after Jefferson and the Wolves were crushed by Portland Saturday night, with a score of 110-91.

    However, Jefferson led the team with 19 points.

    Timberwolves' Al Jefferson arrested for allegedly driving drunk

    Timberwolves basketball player Al Jefferson was arrested early today for allegedly driving drunk, hours after his team's loss to Portland at Target Center.

    Jefferson, 25, was arrested by the Minnesota State Patrol just outside of downtown Minneapolis and booked into Hennepin County Jail on suspicion of fourth-degree driving while impaired about 2:15 a.m. according to Hennepin County jail records. He was released about an hour later.

    A State Trooper clocked Jefferson driving his Range Rover 56 mph in a 40 mph zone near Interstate 394 and Seventh Street, said State Patrol spokesman Lt. Eric Roeske.

    Once on I-394, the trooper saw Jefferson make a lane change without signaling and weave to the left and cross the fog line, Roeske said.

    Jefferson was driving alone and pulled over near Penn Avenue in Minneapolis, Roeske said.

    The trooper smelled and asked Jefferson to perform roadside field sobriety tests, Roeske said. That led to a preliminary breath test, which Jefferson failed, he said.

    Roeske said he would not reveal the result of the preliminary breath test because the case is under investigation.

    Jefferson submitted a blood draw at Hennepin County Medical Center, results of which won't be available for several weeks, Roeske said.

    Jefferson was released from jail about 3:15 a.m., and a court appearance has been scheduled for 8:30 a.m. April 23.

    Roeske said the trooper noted in his report that Jefferson was "very cooperative throughout the process."

    Jefferson, a 6-foot, 10-inch center-forward, scored a team-high 19 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in the Wolves' 110-91 loss to Portland.

    Nick Ferraro can be reached at 651-228-2173.

    Timberwolves President of Basketball Operations David Kahn statement regarding Minnesota Timberwolves center Al Jefferson:

    "On behalf of the Timberwolves organization, we are disappointed that Al used poor judgment last night. Thankfully, nobody was injured or hurt."

    "Having spoken to Al, I can assure everybody associated with our franchise that Al understands this is a matter of the utmost seriousness. He feels terrible about what occurred and I believe him when he says he will learn from his mistake. Nonetheless, we believe that it is appropriate for Al to be suspended for the next two games without pay."
