Cops Wrongly Call Foul on Paul Pierce

8/3/2008 9:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paul PiercePaul Pierce of Boston Celtic fame was pulled over for erratic driving at around 3:30 this morning in Vegas, and apparently cops suspected he was driving wasted.

Law enforcement sources tell us Pierce was stopped in front of the Tropicana Hotel and Casino and given not one but two field sobriety tests, plus a breathalyzer for good measure. He passed all three!

Now here's the interesting part. After cops let him go, Paul left his car at the valet and took a cab home. He was not cited or charged.

So three DUI tests, not cited for erratic driving, decides to take a cab and leave his car.....what's up with all that?

dumbass;

how many times to you need
to hit the comment button ?

NOW who's the uneducated
dumbass one posting here.

just because someone expected that the MVP of the nba
finals was on the olympic team, doesn't make them ignorant.

however, in YOUR case, we can trust with your background,
you post her and TRY to share with folks that your semi - literate,
but the truth be known, that your mistaken it for being illegitimate......

He wasn't drunk. Non- story idiots. People get pulled over every day for a lot of things. Now you print a story about non-signal on a lane change. And for your informtion, if they "smell" the least bit of alcohol, you will be tested, celeb or not

DUH! He was smoking the chronic! Every NBA "playa" does that. SO he might have had ONE DRINK but was probably totally stoned!

I think that leaving his car with the valet and taking a cab shows extremely good sense. If you're tired enough that you're starting to drive erratically, it's a good idea to let someone else drive.

sir blip    

maybe he was playing it safe because he is "street smart" ....remember how all-star weekend went down a couple of years ago? If the police want to eff with you they will ALWAYS find a "reason" to do just that....I'm just saying....what the hell...catch a cab and just get outta there

I was at the same place he was at on Saturday night in Vegas. I can probably tell you what he was drinking and I know for sure that he had a good time. Paul Paul Paul...

BEING AN AFRICAN AMERICAN, HE WAS PROBABLY AFRAID TO DRIVE HIS NICE CAR FOR FEAR OF GETTING STOPPED AGAIN, WHY IS IT JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE IS PULLED OVER, SOME THINK THE DRIVER IS DRUNK OR HIGH - MAYBE THEY ARE JUST TIRED....

Smart black man. You're rich, you should have taken a cab or had a driver in the first place. He learned and corrected himself.

Paul Pierce is a renowned raging alcoholic. A couple of sources say that he was liquored up during actual playoff games. They need to give this guy a breathalyzer on the basketball court and cite him for a DWI (Dribbling while Intoxicated).

Mr. P

passed.

"dang it, he was suposed to fail THAT one too! where's that breathalyzer...."

test # 3?

passed.

"have a good night sir"
