Nocioni pleads no contest to drunken driving
Sacramento Kings forward Andres Nocioni has pleaded no contest to
drunken driving and will serve two days of community service.
Attorney William Portanova entered the misdemeanor plea Monday in Sacramento County Superior Court on behalf of Nocioni, who was not present.
Nocioni was arrested about 2 a.m. Nov. 5 when a police officer noticed his car weaving in downtown Sacramento, hours after the Kings had lost a home game to the Atlanta Hawks.
Portanova says his client wants to "take his medicine and move on."
As part of his sentence, Nocioni will serve two days in a work program operated by the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department. He also must complete a three-month alcohol class, pay a $480 fine and court penalties and serve three years' probation.
