Former NBA guard Mookie Blaylock faces up to 33 years in prison after a grand jury indicted him on 14 charges including first-degree vehicular homicide, serious injury by vehicle and reckless driving, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution

Blaylock, 47, is accused of causing a May 31, 2013 crash that killed a woman and injured her husband. Blaylock was also injured in the crash and Blaylock's attorney said that his foot locked up on the accelerator due to a blackout.

“He had a blackout and what caused it, whether it be from his NBA career or something else, we’re trying to get to the bottom of it,” Blaylock’s attorney, Don Samuel, previously told the newspaper.

Blaylock played 13 seasons in the NBA, including with the Atlanta Hawks from 1992 to 1999 and spent time with the New Jersey Nets and Golden State Warriors. He was named to the first-team All-Defensive team twice and averaged 13.5 points, 4.1 rebounds, 6.7 assists and 2.3 steals per game in his career.
