Ex-Houston Rockets star Steve Francis nabbed for drunken driving

A former player for the Houston Rockets, Steve Francis, is facing a drunken driving charge in Houston after authorities caught him driving with excessive speed, The Washington Post said on November 22.

Reports said, Francis, 39, was stopped on November 19 after officers saw him driving a vehicle with a speed of 88 mph while on the road with 65 mph limit. Francis, who had been verbally abusive with the officers showed signs of alcohol intoxication and had avoided a field sobriety test. Charges related to the incident were filed against him and he is expected to face other charges in Florida over suspicion that he ransacked all the valuable items inside a vehicle parked at Bradenton in June. Florida authorities during the time ignored Francis after he turned himself to police, telling them what he did.
