JONESBORO, Ga. (AP) - A Georgia judge has set bond at $250,000 for an ex-NBA player accused in a fatal suburban Atlanta car crash.
Daron "Mookie" Blaylock appeared in court Tuesday on charges of vehicular homicide, driving on a suspended license, making an improper lane change and crossing the median in the head-on crash from May 31. The crash killed a 43-year-old woman.
A judge said she set bond for the 46-year-old Blaylock based on past DUI arrests dating back to 1996. Police have said at the time of the crash, Blaylock was wanted in Spalding County for failing to appear in court on a DUI charge.
Blaylock's attorney has said his client blacked out just before the crash, and police say drugs and alcohol didn't appear to be a factor.
