After Clippers beat Celtics, Pruitt arrested on suspicion of DUI
Apparently, no good can come from playing against them, either.
Boston came to town and was shocked last night, 93-91. It should have been a nice homecoming for guard Gabe Pruitt, who was a star locally at Westchester High and USC. But a few hours after the Celtics were clipped, Pruitt was popped.
The Boston backup was arrested about 3 a.m. in Hollywood on suspicion of driving under the influence. L.A. Now reports that the incident occurred at Sunset Boulevard and Wilcox Avenue, a few blocks from the LAPD's Hollywood station.
Pruitt was charged with a misdemeanor and released about 8:30 a.m. Probably wasn't too hard coming up with the $5,000 bail -- he was driving a Mercedes S550 and his 2009 salary is listed at $711,517.
