The Interesting Mug Shot Of The Mavericks’ DeShawn Stevenson, Arrested Two Days After Winning Title
June 15 / Glenn Davis / SportsGrid
We have our first fallout from post-NBA-championship euphoria, and it involves the Mavericks' DeSahawn Stevenson, who was arrested last night for public intoxication after "wandering disoriented in an apartment complex." Stevenson "apparently did not know where he was." His mug shot was subsequently released, and yes, you get a good look at his famed Abraham Lincoln neck tattoo:
Man. That Abe Lincoln tattoo. We forgot all about that thing. Never again.
Anyway, where were we? Ah, yes, Stevenson's arrest. One interesting aspect of the unfortunate incident is that, as noted by Dan Steinberg over at DC Sports Bog, Stevenson actually didn't partake in the Mavericks' night on the town in Miami after winning the title, citing his pregnant wife ("I’m not gonna go out and celebrate while she’s home"). Apparently, he still managed to have (a little too much of) his fun.
