If you asked me what story I thought I'd be reading today, I didn't think it'd be one about a 74-year-old man getting busted for DUI. Lakers owner Buss arrested on suspicion of DUI.

    CARLSBAD, Calif. -- Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss was arrested early Tuesday for investigation of driving under the influence of alcohol.

    The 74-year-old Buss was taken into custody shortly before 1 a.m. after he drove his gold Mercedes-Benz station wagon the wrong way on a street in an unincorporated section of Carlsbad that has double yellow lines, California Highway Patrol officer Tom Kerns said.

    "Although I was driving only a short distance, it was a bad decision and I was wrong to do it," Buss said in a statement issued by the Lakers. "It was a mistake I will not make again."

    A 23-year-old woman in the vehicle with Buss wasn't arrested, Kerns said.

    He said Buss was "relatively cooperative" when placed under arrest and was booked into the Vista jail for investigation of drunken driving and driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or above.

Don't know what to say about this other than I'm just glad no one was hurt. But yikes! To be driving drunk at his age!

Not to condone drinking and driving, but with all the drama and headache with Kobe this week, I can kinda understand WHY this happened.

Also, it begs the question...has anyone ever seen Jerry Buss and Stacy "Papa Titus" Keach in the same place at the same time?

Obviously the players are going to want longer guaranteed contracts, but if you see what these contracts have done to some teams, you can understand the owners wanting them reduced.
