Clipper Clipped for Driving Drunk

4/6/2009 12:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Los Angeles ClippersIt's only getting worse for the Los Angeles Clippers ... one of their alleged "stars" was busted for DUI early this morning.

Hours after the Clip Squad went down to the Lakers last night, Clipper power forward Zach Randolph was pulled over by California Highway Patrol officers on the 405 Freeway when they spotted Randolph's white Rolls Royce weaving in and out of his lane at around 2:25 AM.

Cops say when they approached the car, they "noticed an odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from within the vehicle" and proceeded to perform some field tests on the 6'9," 255 pound 27-year-old. Randolph failed those and was arrested for DUI.

Randolph, who already has a previous DUI bust under his belt, is currently behind bars -- being held without bail.

Launch PhotosA spokesman for the Clippers tells us, "We'll reserve comment until we've had an opportunity to review the facts."

UPDATE: Randolph was finally released from jail about 30 minutes ago. In a statement released by the Clippers, the team has suspended Zach "for two games for conduct detrimental to the team."

Just another thug from sports, they make millions and drive the best cars, but in the end they are just thugs from the street. I bet 3/4 of the guys in football and basketball are just street thugs, having made the grade to play street games.

Respond to post # 7 by Mark:

Heyy ANOTHER RACIST who can't wait for a black man to break the law like millions of Americans to call him a 'thug'.
So half of bball players are 'thugs' according to you ? And why ? Because they're Black ? Why don't you get away from your p.c and try to say that in front of a Black man a.k.a 'A thug' ? I know you won't dare doing that just like many of your kind who can ONLY spew their hate using their P.C.

If ever there was a definition by example of "addition by subtraction" it's when the Blazers traded Zach Randolph away. Dumb azz seems to have no clue how good he's got it compared to 99.9999% of the rest of the people in the world. Disgusting and sad.
