Kings Release Statement on Antoine Wright's DUI Arrest

Kings forward Antoine Wright was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence Thursday. Late Friday, the Kings released the following statement from Geoff Petrie:

"We are extremely disappointed in the situation Antoine has created for himself and the organization. There certainly has been no shortage of education and/or resources made available to our players in regard to these types of dangerous behaviors. We will, however, respect his right of due process at this time."

Wright is the second King in recent years to be arrested on DUI charges, following Andres Nocioni's similar arrest almost a year to the day ago. Former Kings coach Eric Musselman was nailed for DUI (with a still unnamed team employee in the passenger seat) in 2005, and Kings co-owner George Maloof was picked up on DUI and other charges in Las Vegas last month.

Wright has played three minutes this season. He has a fully guaranteed $992,000 contract this season.
