LAWFUEL – The Law News Wire – Move over Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. LA Lakers owner Jerry Buss is the latest in a series of DWI arrests.

Buss, 74, failed a sobriety test after being pulled over at 12:50 a.m. near downtown Carlsbad. Police said his blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit of 0.08%, although the final results were not released.

Officers followed Buss after he failed to depress the high beams of his gold Mercedes-Benz E320 while driving southbound on Carlsbad Blvd. Officers were traveling northbound. Officers then observed Buss taking a wide turn and crossing over a double yellow line.

Buss didn’t initially pull over — “He didn’t react right away,” according to the police report — but then moved to the curb. “Mr. Buss was cooperative,” said CHP officer Tom Kerns. “It was an uneventful DUI arrest.”
