Duke HC Mike Krzyzewski’s Grandson Michael Savarino Hit With DWI While Driving Paolo Banchero

I am just going, to be honest.

I have been doing this for 20 years, and something seems fishy about this story. It could all be on the up and up, but my spidey senses are tingling.

Is it possible that Coach’s K grandson did a solid to keep the potential #1 pick, Paolo Banchero, from being hit with a much bigger charge?

We may never know.

Here is what we do know via the News Observer.

Two Duke basketball players face charges in Orange County following a driving while impaired arrest early Sunday morning.

According to court records, Michael Savarino, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski’s grandson, was arrested for DWI while star freshman Paolo Banchero is charged with aiding and abetting DWI.

The N.C. Highway Patrol made the arrest in Orange County at 1:10 a.m. Sunday.

N.C. Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Christopher Knox told the News & Observer that Savarino was stopped for a stop sign violation while driving on Brushy Creek Road outside Hillsborough. The officer observed signs of impairment and Savarino was taken into custody. A breathalyzer test showed a blood alcohol content of .08.

A copy of the arrest report and corresponding citations, obtained from Orange County District Court, confirmed Knox’s statement, and showed the responding officer administered two breathalyzer tests to Savarino, who was driving a white 2017 Jeep SUV registered to Banchero.

The adding and abetting is letting someone drive your car when you know they are drunk.

That is much different than being hit with a DWI.

Did Sarvarino fall on his shield for Banchero? If so, that is a hell of a friend, and he deserves to be commended for being the fall guy.

I can see the thinking, what are they going to do to Coach K’s grandson? He is set for life regardless. They will have the best lawyers defending him. He will be fine.

Salute Sarvarino if you took that bullet for your boy.
