T-Wolves’ Jefferson suspended two games

The Minnesota Timberwolves have suspended center Al Jefferson for
the next two games without pay after his arrest on suspicion of
DWI.

The Minnesota State Patrol says a trooper stopped the
25-year-old Jefferson on Interstate 394 early Sunday for speeding
and changing lanes without signaling.

Jefferson was taken to a hospital for a blood test, then to
Hennepin County Jail on suspicion of fourth-degree driving while
impaired. He was released after an hour in jail.

David Kahn, Timberwolves president of basketball operations,
says Jefferson “feels terrible” about what happened. But Kahn says
it’s appropriate that Jefferson be suspended.

Jefferson led the Timberwolves with 19 points in Saturday
night’s 110-91 loss to Portland. A court appearance is scheduled
for April 23.
