Dallas Mavericks Star

Busted for Public Intoxication

6/15/2011 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dallas Mavericks guard DeShawn Stevenson was arrested last night for public intoxication in Texas ... TMZ has confirmed.

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.

Q: I didn't find your post funny until I got to the part that said 'Let the Germans take over basketball.' LOL! Where have you been the last 20 years? The tats aren't going away. I don't particularly like them either, but if I had his cash, I wouldn't be worrying about finding other work.

The Lincoln tat is ok, but what's with the 5s? Please don't tell me it's because he's on the 5 dollar bill.

Irving PD seems to be up to its same old tricks. They give out these tickets to guys who piss off the Police. Does he really seem drunk in the picture? Hell No! he is there behind an attitude issue. It happend to me about 20 yrs ago the same way in Irving, TX thats why I am so knowledgeable about this charge and to top it off it was a Sheriffs department party to boot but they said I was drunk and wandering around as well when in fact I was walking with another dude. Lie lies and more lies.

People are starting to look ridiculous with these tatoos drawn on their face, necks and legs. Tatoos used to be unique nice looking art work. Nowadays, they are just beginning to look trashy and stupid.

If he sold his "Hey Lebron! How's my Dirk taste" t-shirt on ebay. He could use that money to pay for his bail out. Just won a championship, give the man a break and especially he wasn't even arrested for DUI. Some people didn'*****ch the NBA final series because Stevenson did have a big part in MAVS *WINNING*

Igriffin, Abe Linc did say that but he also said that to "win over" the majority of the people and those of the south. But you are right Abe wasnt exactly fond of black people. They were free as a result of him, but his sole purpose was not to free them. Just sayin, I see your point but that quote was all political jibber jabber.

People on here says he raped someone. Wrong. It was sex, consensual sex with girl under 18. Stop slandering people.

The guy was celebrating the victory. Give him a break. Lebron should do something similar, instead of making lame excuses for his inaction, which contributed to his team's lost to a more focused, determined and 'wanted it more than them' team.

@ Da Man:

"People on here says he raped someone. Wrong. It was sex, consensual sex with girl under 18. Stop slandering people"

Dude - that's still rape. Be it may called Statutory Rape but still rape nonetheless...

He didn't RAPE a girl... he had consensual sex with a minor. I know it's not right, but don't make it sound worse than it was. It wasn't a bunch of guys gang raping one girl. Him and his friend had sex with 2 different girls in a hotel room. He paid for that stupid mistake, too. He was 20 years old. She was like 15.

And I think we've ALL been so drunk that we forgot where we were at one time or another. Stop acting like that has anything to do with CLASS. I get so sick of reading how someone should "stay classy". Get over it.
