tidbit (wait for the punchline)

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The wife of Portland Trail Blazers center Arvydas Sabonis has been charged a second time with drunken driving, violating her court agreement to avoid alcohol, officials said Monday.

Ingrida Sabonis, who turned 30 last Tuesday, was arrested near her home on Sunday after the Washington County sheriff's office received a cell phone call about an erratic driver.

Her blood-alcohol level was measured at 0.26 percent, more than three times the legal limit of 0.08 percent, said sheriff's spokesman Cleo Howell.

Ingrida Sabonis had been cited May 16 for drunken driving, the week after her husband's Lithuanian parents had come to watch him play an NBA game for the first time. She was driving to pick up the couple's four children when police received calls about an erratic driver.
