Charlie Bell, Golden State Warriors Player, Allegedly Shows Up to DUI Hearing Drunk

Slammed Drunk?

In what appears to be a boozy cry for help, Golden State Warriors guard Charlie Bell allegedly went to his DUI hearing -- drunk.

Bell was taken to jail Thursday in his hometown of Flint, Mich., after a scheduled alcohol screening showed that Bell's blood alcohol content level was .09, slightly higher than the legal limit of .08.

Bell was locked up and held on a bond violation until he sobered up. He is expected to appear in court again today.

Bell was arrested in Flint Township on Oct. 21 for drunken driving, driving with a suspended license, and failure to stop at a stop sign.

Sad, but true, Bell isn't the only person to have allegedly hit the bottle too hard before his DUI hearing. Not too far from
Michigan, Chicago resident Sandra Uher was jailed earlier this summer after failing to sober up before appearing in court for her sixth DUI charge.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
