With all the money these celebs have you would think they'd have sense enough by now to hire a driver or TAKE A DAMN CAB CAUSE THEY'LL END UP BOTH SCREWED LEGALLY AND HAVE IT FEATURED ON TMZ!!!

TMZ needs to find something better to report on and leave him ALONE. He's a great guy and COME ON the alcohol blood level here in California is ridiculous. Anyone can fail a sobriety test. Get back to the OctoMom news.

Gabe was recently quoted in an interview as saying

SLAM: Fellas give me something on the first time you put on the uniforms. Growing up a Sixers fans, I hated that kelly green with a passion but as I grow older, I’ve learned to have an appreciation for the nostalgia.

Gabe Pruitt: I always do too. Every time I put on this uniform, you get a different feeling. I just want to make sure I perform in it well.

Obviously he wasn't wearing the unifrom when he got his DUI.....
