Law enforcement sources tell us, police received a call about some drunk guy wandering around an apartment comlpex in Irving, TX last night -- and when cops showed up, they found Stevenson ... who said he was lost.

Stevenson -- who does not live in the apartment complex -- then flunked a field sobriety test ... and was arrested for public intoxication.

Law enforcement sources tell us, the officers "felt he was a danger to himself and others."

Stevenson -- a major force behind Dallas' victory over Miami on Sunday -- posted $475 bail this morning and was released.

Stevenson's championship celebration started with him gloating in a t-shirt that read, "HEY LEBRON! HOW'S MY DIRK TASTE."

I'm sure Abraham Lincoln would be proud to see his face tatooed on some guy's neck.

Damn! Taking cir****tances into consideration, it used to be that the Dallas cops would have driven him home (stopped at 7-11 & got him a cup of coffee on the way), walked him to his door & let him off with a warning. It's a cold, cold world.

Where were his friends, and how did he get lost from the others? Someone could have showed compassion and took this man home to detox. It is a normal thing to celebrate such a victory, yet, one has to watch his or her back at all times! Especially for the black man, STAY FOCUSED! Liquor is a pure evil and those who refrain from it see the ugliness of the world more clearly.

Same thing happened to a friend of mine in a Dallas complex. She couldn't get out without a key and when she went to find the party she had just left... all the places looked exactly the same. She didn't get arrested but the cops were called after she knocked on many doors. And yes, instead of helping her get out to where her cab was waiting, a girl walked out, stood by her and the locked gate and called the cops. Dallas people suck for the most part.

At least he wasn't driving. Also, he did not even go out with the team on the night they won b/c his pregnant wife could not travel to the game. He played poker in his hotel room with his trainer. He gets a pass on this one in my book.

Ummmm...why aren't we hearing the normal "role-model" talk we hear about comments being made? I mean I give him winning the finals...which he really didn't have much of a part in...but the childish behavior after the win is a bit much. Grow up and get it together. It's suppose to be an accomplishment...why make it something negative.
