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.

Learn your history Deshawn before you permanently tattoo stupid "I'm a dumb***" to your neck! Lincoln owned slaves, Lincoln never agreed with the Emancipation Proclamation
quote from Lincoln during the signing:

"I am not now, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social or political equality of the white and black races. I am not now nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor of intermarriages with white people. There is a physical difference between the white and the black races which will forever forbid the two races living together on social or political equality. There must be a position of superior and inferior, and I am in favor of[..]igning the superior position to the white man."

Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation to win foreign favor for the Union. He had every intention, and plans in place to move all Black people back Africa.
