An NBA player arrested last summer for driving under the influence entered a no contest plea today, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Allen Lester Crabbe III, 27, entered the plea to one misdemeanor count of engaging in a motor vehicle exhibition of speed on a highway.

Crabbe was immediately sentenced to three years of summary probation and ordered to complete DUI first offender and Mothers Against Drunk Driving programs.

Deputy District Attorney Lucrecia Boado said a Watson advisement also was given, stating that if he drives under the influence and a person is killed, he could be charged with murder.

On June 26, 2019, Crabbe was driving in West Hollywood when he was stopped by a sheriff’s deputy after showing signs of driving under the influence.

Case 9AR32954 was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
