Mugshot from KSAT
This NBA lockout has driven a few to drink and drown away sorrows, and at least one to drink and drive away their sorrows.
R.C. Buford, the General Managers for the San Antonio Spurs since 2002, was arrested and charged with with driving while intoxicated with an open container following an accident last Friday night. Buford crashed his vehicle into a fence and then was arrested when police arrived on the scene.
Buford blamed the accident on low-blood sugar as he is a diabetic, yet still apologized for the incident.
Buford has been with the Spurs since 1988, and his son Chase Buford plays for Kansas and was arrested on suspicion of DUI in 2009. Like father like son.
