Lucious faces no jail, hundreds in fines
Junior guard Korie Lucious was sentenced to one day in jail and hundreds in fines today in East Lansing’s 54-B District Court for reckless driving, stemming from an Aug. 30 arrest where Lucious was arrested for operating while intoxicated.
A court clerk said Lucious was credited one day in jail already, and he faces no additional jail time. He also is required to pay $903.80 in court fees and fines.
Lucious was arrested Aug. 30 on suspicion of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. The charge was reduced from an OWI to a reckless driving charge in September.
According to a copy of the ticket issued to Lucious, his blood alcohol content was 0.09 when he was pulled over. The player had been driving a red 2002 Buick when he was arrested near Charles and Linden streets at about 2:20 a.m.
At the time of arrest, Lucious was not 21.
Lucious, a Milwaukee native, averaged 5.6 points and 3.2 assists in 36 games last season. When then-junior guard Kalin Lucas went down with a ruptured Achilles’ tendon in the NCAA Tournament, then-sophomore Lucious filled in as point guard and led the team to the Final Four.
