Cavs' Iman Shumpert arrested on suspicion of DUI
Friday September 9th, 2016

Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert was pulled over and arrested for suspicion of DUI last month in Atlanta, the team announced Friday.

Shumpert was pulled over for a lane violation on Aug. 10 before being booked. TMZ reports officers found a mason jar containing marijuana inside the car, and that the officers determined he was high after failing a field sobriety test.

Traditionally, the league has handed down suspensions of three games for DUIs.

The Cavaliers said they have discussed the issue with Shumpert, and a court date has not been set.

The former first-round pick played in 54 games for Cleveland last season, starting five, and averaged 5.8 points and 3.8 rebounds.
