Former NBA star Kenny Anderson, 42, was arrested in Broward County early Saturday and charged with DUI, according to arrest records.
Anderson, who played point guard for the New Jersey Nets and Boston Celtics, was picked up by a Pembroke Pines police patrol about 4:30 a.m. after he was allegedly observed driving in and out of his lane.
Once a legend of New York City’s street courts, Anderson was let out of the slammer Saturday after paying his $500-bond.
Anderson, who once was married to VH-1’s Basketball Wives star Tami Roman, moved to Pembroke Pines at the end of his career in 2006 after one season in Lithuania.
He now coaches basketball at the fancy private David Posnack Jewish Day School in nearby Davie.
It’s not the first time Anderson, who is believed to have made $60 million in his career but is nearly broke, is in trouble for late night driving in Broward.
He was arrested in Miramar in December 2011 after slamming his Escalade SUV into two trees. That night, Anderson actually walked away from the crash and cops called him at home to order him to return.
When he came back to the scene, Anderson reportedly smelled of booze and sported blood-shot eyes. Police. however, did not charge him with DUI because they knew he could claim he drank at home after the crash.
Still, he was charged with fleeing the scene of an accident, a misdemeanor. The court withheld adjudication last year.
Anderson’s high-profile lawyer, Michael Grieco, declined comment.
