Golden State Warriors forward/center Marreese Speights was arrested in Tampa, Fla. on Aug. 5 on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI). 

Warriors insider Monte Poole of CSNBayArea.com wrote more about the development: 

"Warriors backup big man Marreese Speights was arrested early Tuesday in Tampa on suspicion of driving under the influence, CSN Bay Area has confirmed.

"Speights, who turned 27 on Monday, was stopped by police officers at 3:44 a.m. Tuesday after failing to yield the right of way upon pulling a black Bentley out onto Kennedy Blvd W from a private driveway. Ofc. D. Bailey 'detected indicators of impairment,' according to the police report, after which Speights agreed to perform roadside field sobriety exercises.

"Speights was subsequently arrested for DUI and submitted breath samples, which resulted in blood-alcohol content measures of .103 and .106. The legal limit in Florida is 0.08.

"Speights' vehicle was impounded and he was jailed before being released on bond (late) Tuesday morning. 

"In the wake of the arrest, the Warriors on Tuesday afternoon issued the following statement:

'We are aware or Marreese Speights' arrest this morning on DUI charges in Florida and are in the process of obtaining additional information. As an ongoing legal matter, we will have no further comment at this time.'

"Speights is entering the second year of a three-year contract signed with the Warriors last summer; the third season is subject to team option. He played in 79 regular-season games and all seven playoff games, mostly as a backup power forward but occasionally as a center." 

In another development, former Warriors assistant coach Brian Scalabrine announced he will be a Comcast SportsNet New England color commentator for the Boston Celtics via a spoof letter of LeBron James' "I'm Coming Home," per CSNNE.com: 

"I'm not promising a championship. I know how hard that is to deliver. We're not ready right now. No way. Of course, I want to win next year, but I'm realistic. I'm only a broadcaster -- what could I really do? It will be a long process, much longer than in 2008. My patience will get tested. I know that. I'm going into a situation with a young team and a young coach.

"I will be the young Comcast SportsNet announcer in the booth next to the legendary Mike Gorman and learn from the greatest color analyst in the game Mr. Tommy Heinsohn. I know that I have a lot to learn but I see myself as a Champion, and I think I can help break down some great Marcus Smart dunks this season.

"I think I can elevate Kelly Olynyk's game by the amount of research I make my interns do before announcing road games. And I can't wait to reunite with Rajon Rondo, one of my favorite teammates. Paul, KG, and Ray may have all left, but Rondo and the White Mamba remain in Boston, at least for now.

"But this is not about the roster or the oragnization. Thinking twice about it, it really is above the organization. Does it get any better than the Celtics? I feel my calling here goes above basketball -- get it...calling...double meaning? They call that a pun. I have a responsibility to lead, in more ways than one, and I take that very seriously.

"I want kids in Boston, like the hundreds of elementary school kids who have red hair and no chance of making the NBA, to realize that there's no better place to grow up. Maybe some of them will come home after college and work at a bank. That would make me smile.

"Our community, which has struggled. Well, not really. Winning eight championships since 2000 isn't much of a struggle, and I guess the (Boston Red) Sox won last year. I should have known that...where was I? Oh yeah, I want to bring another championship back to Boston. Really, I just want to ride in another championship parade and smoke an overpriced Cuban cigar as a tribute to Red (Auerbach) after we hang banner number 18.

"In Boston, nothing is given. Remember in the movie 'The Departed' when Francis Costello said, 'No one gives it to you. You have to take it.' That was a great scene and a great Boston movie. 

"I'm ready to accept the Scallenge. Boston, I'm coming home."
