Boston Celtics second-year center Vitor Faverani was arrested in Valencia, Spain, on charges of drunk driving, reported Spanish newspaper El Mercantil Valenciano.
The 6-foot-11 post player was recovering from surgery to repair a torn meniscus he suffered last season.
Faverani is originally from Porto Alegre, Brazil, but began playing professionally in Spain at the age of 17.
He played in 37 games during the 2013-14 NBA season and averaged 4.4 points per game.
