Meet Atlanta resident Jarrett Matthew Jack, age 27. Jack is a New Orleans Hornets guard who helped lead Georgia Tech to the 2004 NCAA title game.
He was arrested in Gwinnett County early Sunday (February 20, 2011) on charges of DUI, speeding and failure to maintain lane.
According to the police report, Jack, was stopped while driving a black Mercedes-Benz shortly after 4 a.m. for speeding on U.S. 78 westbound near McGee Road, in Snellville. He was driving 66 in a 45 mph zone.
“The officer paced the vehicle, verifying that it was speeding, and observed the vehicle cross the center line and the fog line,” Snellville Police Chief Roy Whitehead wrote in an email.
“He stopped the vehicle and smelled an odor of alcoholic beverage coming from the driver, Jarrett Matthew Jack. He conducted field sobriety tests, which Mr. Jack failed.”
Jack was given the test at the Gwinnett County Jail because the police department’s Intoxilyzer was not working on site. According to Whitehead, Jack registered a .079 at 5:38 a.m., 90 minutes after the traffic stop.
“In general, alcohol dissipates from the system at approximately .02 grams per hour,” Whitehead wrote. “Therefore, he would have been over the limit of .08 at the time of the driving infraction.”
Whitehead also noted that drivers can be charged with DUI-less safe if they register anything above .04 and are seen speeding and weaving.
Jack was selected 22nd overall in the NBA draft after leaving Tech following his junior season. He was the sixth Yellow Jacket to break 1,000 points and 500 assists in a career. As a junior, Jack led Tech in scoring (15.5), assists (4.5), steals (1.8) and 3-point shooting (44.2 percent).
New Orleans is his fourth NBA team. Jack, who backs up Chris Paul at point guard, is averaging 7.6 points and 2.8 assists.
