It was all good just a week ago.
Former NBA and college star, Steve Francis, wrote an article a week ago for The Players’ Tribune in regards to alcohol abuse and how it ruined his NBA career. He also wanted to reassure his fans that he never used drugs, just alcohol.
Well I guess the article didn’t mean much to him as the 41-year old was arrested in Burbank for public intoxication per TMZ. Police were called to a hotel for a disturbance between two men. He received a citation and was released from jail.
This isn’t his first time getting in trouble for drinking. in 2016, he was arrested for a DUI. Francis began drinking heavily after he left the NBA and when his stepfather committed suicide. Francis was arrested in 2016 for a DUI and burglary charges according to The Washington Post.
The last time the 3 time All-Star played for an NBA team was 10 years ago for the Houston Rockets.
