Pruitt Arrested For OUI

Channel Five reports:

BOSTON -- Boston Celtics player Gabe Pruitt was arrested Thursday morning in California on suspicion of operating a car under the influence, according to the Web site TMZ.com.  Pruitt, a guard with the team, was pulled over around 3:15 a.m. in the Hollywood area. Pruitt failed a field sobriety test and had a blood alcohol level well over the legal limit, TMZ.com reported.  Pruitt was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence. His bail was set at $5,000.

UPDATE:

A traffic officer spotted Pruitt's Mercedes S550 sedan and another car stopped at a green light at Sunset Boulevard and Wilcox Avenue, a few blocks from the LAPD's Hollywood station, about 3 a.m., said Officer Julianne Sohn.

The two drivers were having a conversation, Sohn said.

"The officer did a field sobriety test and determined that Pruitt should be arrested for a DUI," Sohn said.

Pruitt, 22, was booked on a misdemeanor charge, with bail set at $5,000.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's website indicated he was released about 8:30 a.m. (11:30am EST)
