KCP's blood alcohol level allegedly right at legal limit of .08.

NBA: Brooklyn Nets at Detroit Pistons Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Local news station WXYZ in Detroit reported that Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was arrested early Thursday morning at 2:50 a.m. for suspicion of driving while under the influence.

The report stated that he had a blood alcohol content of .08, which is at the legal limit. It also said that he was cooperative with the arresting officers.

KCP was still able to play in the game against the Nets later that day. He played 36 minutes, but was mostly ineffective, shooting 5-14.

It’s not a great moment for a player about to hit restricted free agency, especially one who is working toward a maximum contract.

Greg Monroe was suspended two games related to an impaired driving incident while assistant coach Tim Hardaway was suspended three games for an incident earlier this season.

No discipline would be handed down until the legal process plays out, meaning any suspension would likely happen next season.
