    What a tool.


    In October, Golden State Warriors backup guard Charlie Bell was arrested in Flint, MI for a DUI. That arrest followed a troublesome series of events for Bell, including another DUI arrest in February and an alleged stabbing by his wife Kenya Bell in May. Clearly, something is the matter in Bell's personal life.
    On Thursday, he may have hit rock bottom, because Bell arrived at a hearing for his October DUI with a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit. From Rusty Simmons for SFGate.com (via EOB):
    Warriors reserve guard Charlie Bell spent hours in custody Thursday after showing up to court legally drunk for a hearing on his drunken driving case, according to the ABC affiliate in Flint, Mich.
    Bell was held, in a district court holding cell, on a bond violation until he sobered up. He's expected back in court Friday, which marks the start of Warriors training camp for the rest of his teammates. [...]
    That case was set to be resolved Thursday morning, until Bell blew a reported .09 during a pre-scheduled alcohol assessment.The legal limit is .08.

    I read several places the Warriors were expected to use their amnesty to cut him.

    How the hell does a CBA-level player get a no-cut contract anyway?

    All he has to do to save his job is admit he's an alcoholic. The NBA has an EAP program, if I'm not mistaken.
