Detroit Pistons center Ben Wallace pleaded guilty today to misdemeanor alcohol and weapons charges, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. The 37-year-old was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated and possessing a fire arm while under the influence of alcohol.

Wallace was reportedly arrested Sept. 24 after officers said they saw his Cadillac swerving. A sobriety test showed that Wallace’s blood alcohol level was over the .08 legal limit. The former All-Star reportedly told officers that he drank four beers before he made the decision to drive.

Officers also reportedly found an unloaded gun, registered to Wallace’s wife, in a bag in his backseat.

Wallace could potentially face up to 93 days on the misdemeanor drunken driving charge.
