Former Florida Gators forward Dan Werner, back in Gainesville, FL after a season of playing professional basketball for Virtus Bologna of Italian Serie A, was arrested and booked on charges of driving under the influence at 2:50 a.m. Tuesday.
According to the police report, Werner was pulled over in a Silver Kia with a tail light out and its high beams on. He told the officer he was driving for his intoxicated girlfriend but failed field sobriety tests when administered. Werner also submitted to a breath test and blew below the legal limit (0.08) but was arrested anyway.
The Gainesville Sun reports that Werner admitted to playing beer pong and “drinking at least two drinks containing whiskey” at some point during the evening.
