Whether you know him as “Wink” from back in the days, a businessman, We R One, balling on the courts or in high spirits; we have all seen happier days for the Ex-NBA superstar Steve Francis.
Here recently, he admitted to 1 count of driving while intoxicated stemming from a crazy Nov. 2016 arrest … but he ain’t going back to the slammer.
Francis appeared in a Houston courtroom Tuesday and pled guilty to the misdemeanor DWI charge. In exchange, he was ordered 3 nights in jail — but the judge gave him credit for time served so he won’t be returning.
He was also fined $1,000 and his driver’s license has been suspended for up to 1 year.
As we previously reported, Francis was initially pulled over in a black Chevy Tahoe for speeding — but during the stop, the cop noticed he reeked of booze. Francis was also verbally abusive and allegedly vowed REVENGE on the arresting officers.
Cops say they found weed — but that charge was dropped. Hey, it’s Houston!
What many don’t know about the ex-Baller is that he suffers from vertigo. Maybe this is setback will be a major comeback for DMV’s own.
Hopefully, Steve will get back to normal in no time, creating those Sparkle Moments!
