San Antonio Spurs point guard Devonte’ Graham has been placed on unsupervised probation for 12 months, following his arrest for driving under the influence in his hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina, in July 2022.

Graham, 28, initially received a 21-day jail sentence before it was suspended. Instead, he was placed on probation after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of driving while impaired last month.

What’s more is that the NBA hooper was also required to pay $393 in fines and fees as part of his sentencing too, according to the Wake County City-County Bureau of Identification (CCBI) records.

On July 7, 2022, Graham was arrested after police pulled him over at 2:39 a.m. for driving 63 mph on a street where the speed limit was 40. 

Officers suspected impairment during the traffic stop and Graham submitted to a breath test. His results were a 0.11 breath-alcohol concentration, above the state maximum of .08.
