WTVD, citing a police report, said that Redick was arrested at 1:03 a.m. in Durham, N.C., after the former Duke star made an illegal U-turn to avoid a police checkpoint.
The television station reported that Redick is scheduled to appear in a Durham court on July 17.
The NBA draft is scheduled June 28 in New York City. How an arrest will affect Redick's draft status is unclear.
This is getting old with these athletes. Ben riding a bike and now it comes out that he didn't have a PA license to operate a motorcycle. Now this with Redick. Athletes must really think they are above the law.
I'm a huge Roethlisberger fan but I do think he was in the wrong.
