Former NBA star Steve Francis, 41, has been arrested for public intoxication after a disturbance at a hotel bar in Los Angeles.
Francis was arrested late Sunday night, being released earlier in the morning. He has long battled alcoholism, recently writing an article on his struggles in The Player Tribune.
In his career, Francis was a 3 time All-Star and the NBA Rookie of the Year in 2000. His career significantly fell off as he got older, which he attributes to his alcohol issues.
