NBA winner released from jail

12:39 pm on 17 June 2011

DeShawn Stevenson, a guard for the US basketball's NBA champions the Dallas Mavericks, has been released from jail after being arrested for public drunkeness.

Stevenson, who's played in the NBA for a decade, was arrested after reports of an intoxicated person wandering around a suburban apartment complex.

Police say Stevenson didn't know where he was and failed sobriety tests, leading to his arrest.

A parade to celebrate the Mavericks win has been held in Dallas on Friday.
