Former Rockets’ member Steve Francis suspected of DUI

A charge of driving a vehicle while under the influence (DUI) was recently filed against professional basketball player Steve Francis after a traffic stop in Houston, The Washington Post reported on November 22.

Reports said officers from the Houston Police Department stopped the vehicle driven by Francis, 39, on November 19 after he was seen driving with excessive speed. Francis reportedly had a speed of 88 mph on a road with a 65 mph posted sign. Officers on the scene said that the former point guard showed several signs that he had recently consumed alcohol but he avoided a field sobriety test. Francis, who was released after posting a bond, was again taken into custody after he was linked to a June burglary incident in Florida.
