Tampa Bay, FL – Tampa Bay Times
Lightning left wing Ryan Malone was arrested early Saturday in Tampa and charged with driving under the influence and cocaine possession.
Malone was released from Hillsborough County jail on $2,500 bond but did not travel with the team to Washington for today’s regular-season finale with the Capitals.
Malone submitted to a breath test at booking. His results were 0.112 and 0.116, police said. A blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent is the threshold at which Florida law presumes someone is unable to safely drive.
Malone, whose Suburban was impounded, also has seven traffic violations since June, including ones for speeding, failing to stop at a traffic signal and driving without proof of insurance. Tuesday he was cited for driving with a suspended license; he has an April 30 court date for that.Read more: http://www.tampabay.com/sports/hockey/lightning/lightnings-malone-arrested-on-dui-cocaine-charges/2174835
