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.

He's a P.O.S. This is the same guy who was accused of raping a minor with other men in a motel room while in college.

Hey TruDat

Lincoln owned slaves - instead of learning your history from google, you should try picking up a book. "Colinization after Emancipation," read it, you might be suprised at what you learn.

i thought public drunkness was held not to be a crime. After all what crime are you committing? we don't make public drunkness arrest in chicago. and we do get drunk. now if you commit a crime while drunk, you get arrested for that crime.
