Pistons' Kentavious Caldwell-Pope arrested for suspicion of DUI

The Pistons made Caldwell-Pope an unrestricted free agent agent after trading for Avery Bradley.

Pistons guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was arrested hours after the team's loss to the Heat on Tuesday night and ticketed for driving under the influence.

WDIV first reported the arrest, which occurred after Caldwell-Pope was pulled over around 2:50 a.m. Wednesday for driving 45 mph in a 25 mph zone. The officer who stopped him smelled alcohol and arrested Caldwell-Pope after conducting field sobriety tests. A Breathalyzer test later registered the player's blood-alcohol content at 0.08, WDIV reported.

Caldwell-Pope played in Thursday night's win over the Nets, scoring 12 points. The 24-year-old is averaging 14.1 points per game this season and is set to become a restricted free agent this summer.

Detroit has six games remaining in the regular season and enters Friday's contest at Milwaukee 2 1/2 games out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
