Retired NBA point guard Kenny Anderson has been arrested and charged with leaving the scene of an accident, according to the Associated Press.

The incident occurred late Sunday after Anderson, 41, left a Florida bar. The police say his SUV hit two trees and Anderson left the scene of the accident and returned home. A police officer went to his home and instructed him to return to the scene. The police report also stated that Anderson smelled of alcohol and that his speech was slurred. Still, Anderson was not charged with driving under the influence.

"And because he went home, it's difficult to prove that he was over the legal limit when he was driving," a police spokeswoman Tania told The South Florida Sun Sentinel Tuesday.

Anderson was briefly jailed Sunday night, but he soon posted bond and was released. The No. 2 overall pick by the New Jersey Nets in 1991, Anderson spent 14 seasons in the NBA with eight teams.
