Ex-NBA All-Star Daron “Mookie” Blaylock was jailed without bond after he surrendered on June 10 for driving while intoxicated.

The former NBA player was arrested and jailed after being involved in a deadly head-on collision on May 31 that killed a woman in Jonesboro. According to Blaylock’s attorney, his client blacked out before the crash happened.

The ex member of the New Jersey Nets is also charged with driving with a suspended license, making an improper lane change, and median lane crossing in connection to the fatal crash. Authorities also reported that Blaylock was wanted for failure to respond to other DUI charges against him.
