Celebrity DUI List

The Celebrity DUI / DWI Roundup is a monthly article that includes news and updates on recent DWI arrests involving celebrities.

However, the intention of this article is not to simply highlight the celebrities who have been arrested on drunk driving charges. Instead, this article is meant to point out the legal options available to those arrested (whether celebrity or not) on DUI charges.

At Levow DWI Law, P.C., our team of experienced DWI defense lawyers see too many individuals “fall on the sword” by simply pleading guilty to the charges against them after a DUI arrest without considering all of their legal options.

DUI Arrests & Updates From November

This month’s installment of the Celebrity DUI / DWI Roundup includes several stories and updates involving celebrities who were arrested on allegations of intoxicated driving including an NFL player, a former NBA star, and an MLB pitcher.

L.A. Rams Cornerback Troy Hill Arrested For DUI

NFL star Troy Hill - who plays cornerback for the L.A. Rams - was arrested on DUI charges in November after allegedly crashing into a semi-truck on the highway.

According to initial reports, Hill was arrested on the morning of Saturday, November 19th, after he got into an auto-accident involving his vehicle and a semi-truck.

Police say that Hill was driving a Mercedes-Benz on the Los Angeles Freeway at around 8am when he allegedly swerved across several traffic lanes and crashed into the back of a semi-truck.

After arriving at the scene of the accident, police officers reportedly noticed signs of intoxication on Hill’s person and administered a field sobriety test before arresting him on DUI charges.

He was ultimately charged with two counts of DUI, one count of driving on a suspended license, and one count of driving without a license. He is awaiting trial for these charges.

Hill was released by the L.A. Rams just four days after news broke of his DUI arrest.

Ex-NBA Star Steve Francis Arrested For Drunk Driving In Houston, TX

Former NBA player Steve Francis was arrested on drunk driving charges in November after being pulled over in Houston, Texas.

Francis, who played for the Houston Rockets, was driving a black Chevrolet Tahoe on Saturday, November 19th, when he was pulled over by police officers for allegedly driving 88mph in a 65mph zone.

According to reports, officers on the scene noticed that Francis smelled of alcohol and found marijuana in the vehicle.

Francis allegedly refused to submit to a field sobriety test when asked to do so. He was eventually arrested and taken into custody where he was charged with DWI, possession of marijuana, and retaliation.

Texas Rangers Pitcher Jeremy Jeffress Charged In DWI Arrest From August

Texas Rangers pitcher Jeremy Jeffress was recently charged with one count of Driving While Intoxicated in his case stemming from an arrest in August.

Jeffress was arrested on August, 26th in Dallas, TX after being pulled over for a routine traffic stop.

We initially wrote about Jeffress’ DUI arrest in the Celebrity DUI / DWI Roundup back in August.

The MLB pitcher is scheduled to appear in court on December 15th for sentencing.
