Former NBA Player/ Assistant Coach Popeye Jones Arrested for DUI

Maybe former NBA player and current assistant coach of the Dallas Mavericks, Popeye Jones should take a cue from his animated namesake and just help himself to a can of spinach next time.


The 6 foot 8 Jones was arrested last Sunday for driving under the influence. The police department allegedly received several complaints about a GMC Yukon being driven erratically. Evidently, there was a struggle when the police tried to take the ex-power forward into custody.


In his mug shot, Jones had several contusions on his face, which the police said was a result when they took him down on the ground. Jones also allegedly refused to take a breathalyzer test.


Here’s shot of Popeye Jones’ mug shot:

The moral of the lesson is best expressed through an old song, “I’m strong to the finish ‘coz I eat my spinach, I’m Popeye the sailorman.”
