The report states that Caldwell-Pope was pulled over just before 3 a.m. on Auburn Road near Squirrel Road in Auburn Hills.

Detroit Pistons shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving early Wednesday morning in Auburn Hills, according to a report. After a field sobriety test, he was arrested.

They added that Pope was cooperative throughout this process.


At the police station, he was administered a Breathalyzer test and had a blood-alcohol level of 0.08, the minimum in MI to be considered illegally driving under the influence, police said.

Pope was issued an appearance ticket for operating while intoxicated. Detroit's NBC affiliate WDIV-TV was the first to report the arrest. He played Thursday night at The Palace where the Pistons beat the Brooklyn Nets 90-89.

Caldwell-Pope, 24, was drafted by the Pistons with the eighth overall pick in 2013.


The incident subjects Caldwell-Pope, who is in his fourth season and will be a restricted free agent this summer, to the NBA's substance abuse policy.

The Pistons play Friday night in Milwaukee.
