AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — A police report says Charlotte Hornets guard James Bouknight was found intoxicated and unconscious in a parking lot with his vehicle in drive when he was arrested for DWI. The report also says he was holding a handgun. The report says officers set up a perimeter and attempted to awaken Bouknight through a public address system, blasting airhorns and using lights for approximately an hour. The report says that once Bouknight awakened he refused to comply with commands and appeared confused. A breathalyzer test later confirmed Bouknight’s blood-alcohol content was 0.14, above North Carolina’s legal limit of 0.08.
