PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - Pistons' center Ben Wallace was sentenced Tuesday morning on misdemeanor charges of Operating a Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated and Possession of a Firearm While Under the Influence.
Wallace was sentenced to a $600 fine and one year probation. Wallace will also incur $1620 in supervisory costs. Wallace will have to pay $130 to the Crime Victims fund and perform 30 hours of community service at the Boys and Girls Club.
The 37-year-old appeared Tuesday morning before Oakland County Circuit Judge Shalina Kumar.
Wallace pleaded guilty last month to the charges.
He was arrested around 3 a.m. on Sept. 24 in Bloomfield Township after officers observed a Cadillac Escalade driving erratically.
Police found an unloaded pistol in a backpack.
Officers said Wallace was given a blood-alcohol test and was above Michigan's legal limit of 0.08 percent.
Wallace helped the Pistons win the 2004 NBA title.
