David Matthew Allen was arrested for alleged DWI in University Park Saturday night, police reports indicate.
The 18-year-old was allegedly driving his black 2005 Chevy Tahoe in the 6300 block of Hillcrest Avenue when he struck a white 2007 BMW 325i, then fled the scene. After fielding a call from a resident who witnessed the incident, University Park police pulled Allen over in the 3800 block of Greenbrier. An officer allegedly smelled alcohol on the teen’s breath, and found vehicle damage consistent with the witness’ report.
Allen blew .115 and .122 in Intoxilyzer tests, a police affidavit states.
Allen averages 22 points for the Scots this year, and was ready to lead the team against Newman Smith tonight.
HPISD spokeswoman Helen Williams confirmed the report, then stated that the district’s extracurricular code of conduct would not allow “the player” to play in a game tonight. When discussing the school-sanctioned consequences for a DWI, Williams, citing the district’s privacy regulations, would not mention Allen specifically.
For the illegal consumption of alcohol (first offense), the code of conduct reads:
Suspension from current or nearest competitive season or activity for a minimum
of one week or 10% of the season, whichever is greater, up to a maximum of 3
weeks or 30% of the season, whichever is greater.
If the Scots win tonight without Allen, he would also be suspended for Friday’s game against the winner of tonight’s Kimball-Hillcrest game, per the policy. Allen was also charged with duty on striking an unattended vehicle.
