As many of you may of suspected, Carmelo took a plea deal and got off easy:
“The Nuggets All-Star was sentenced to probation and community service for a charge of driving while ability-impaired. In exchange, prosecutors are dropping a more serious DUI charge. He was also whistled for failure to stay in a single lane — not the hardwood kind.
He’ll serve one year of probation, do 24 hours of community service, and pay a grand in fines. He was also just suspended two games by the Nuggets.”
Let’s see what this slap on the wrist does for Melo. Our guess is he’ll be back behind the wheel all zooted up by this weekend. The Denver PD will have to do a better job covering his tracks next time. SMH.
