Carmelo Anthony is the most recent baller to cop a charge as he was popped for suspicion of DUI.

According to TMZ, the 23-year-old Denver Nuggets forward was driving on Interstate 25 in Colorado at around 4:00 AM when he was pulled over and taken into custody. Anthony was driving a silver Mercedes and police say he was stopped for failing to drive in a single lane and failing to dim his lights.

Anthony's attorney, Dan Recht, said, "He cooperated by consenting to a blood test, the results of which will not be available for approximately two weeks ... There was no accident and no one was hurt."

He is due back in court on May 14. If they weren't able to determine the alcohol level on a breathalyser, then I suspect the level was on the border of illegal and he'll get a slap on the hand.
