Nuggets’ Lawson could be forced to use alcohol monitoring device
Colorado prosecutors want Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson to use an alcohol monitoring device after he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence for a second time this year.
Lawson was arrested in Los Angeles Tuesday and is scheduled to stand trial in a Denver DUI case next month.
After his January arrest in Denver, Lawson was ordered not to drink alcohol or violate laws as part of his bond. Prosecutors now are asking a judge to require him to use a device, such as an ankle bracelet or a home breath tester, that monitors the body for alcohol.
A judge could rule on the request Friday when Lawson is due in court for a hearing.
A spokeswoman for his agent didn’t return a call seeking comment.
