Photo: James Bouknight Slept With Gun In Lap and a Bag of Doritos During DWI Arrest

Not a good look.

Charlotte Hornets player James Bouknight stepped in it as he was arrested for a DWI this past weekend. The arrest actually took place during the early hours of Sunday morning. According to TMZ, Bouknight was not driving the vehicle when he was arrested, although he was causing issues in a parking deck. Attendants at the parking lot tried to get Bouknight’s attention, although he was passed out drunkn. When police arrived on the scene, they realized that Bouknight had an open bag of Doritos in his lap, as well as a Glock. North Carolina is an open carry state that does not require a license, so Bouknight didn’t get in trouble for the gun.

After being booked by police, Bouknight was released on $2,500 bond.

Unfortunately for Bouknight, this is his third traffic stop since February. He has been caught speeding which led to a reckless driving charge. There was also a report that he fled from a car in 2019 while smelling like alcohol.

Might it be time to suspend his license?
