Warriors center Marreese Speights was arrested on a second-degree misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence Tuesday in Tampa, Florida, the early morning after his 27th birthday, according to the Tampa Police Department.

Speights was arrested at 3:31 a.m. ET and later submitted to two tests showing breath alcohol content levels of .103 and .106 percent, according to the incident log. Florida's unlawful breath alcohol level is .08 or above.

Speights was stopped while pulling out of a driveway in a black 2012 Bentley because of a failure to yield right of way, according to the incident log. An officer detected indicators of impairment, and after Speights agreed to roadside field sobriety exercises, the player was arrested and transported to a breath testing facility.

Speights, who according to the incident report was cooperative, was later released from Hillsborough County Orient Road Jail on $500 bond, according to Tampa police.

The Warriors said in a statement they were aware of the arrest and "in the process of obtaining additional information," citing an ongoing legal matter in declining further comment. Speights did not return a message seeking comment.

Speights, who won a national championship playing for the University of Florida, averaged 6.4 points and 3.7 rebounds in his first year of a three-year, $11 million contract with the Warriors.

  • The Warriors were informed guard Nemanja Nedovic suffered a stress fracture in his right foot while training with Serbia's national team for the FIBA World Cup and are waiting to review X rays to confirm, a Warriors spokesman said.

    Nedovic reportedly was injured in Sunday's 82-69 exhibition win against Bosnia in Italy. A team doctor told Mondo.rs that Nedovic is believed to have a fifth metatarsal fracture and would need it immobilized for three to four weeks if an exam confirms the injury.

    A first-round draft pick, Nedovic missed 22 games with health-related issues as a rookie.

    Nedovic could become the second Warrior to miss the World Cup for Serbia, as center Ognjen Kuzmic is out due to a stress reaction in his left leg.
