DURHAM, N.C. -- J.J. Redick's court appearance to face
drunken driving charges was delayed until Aug. 29.

Redick, a former Duke star and first-round draft pick of the
Orlando Magic, was scheduled to appear Tuesday in a Durham
courtroom before District Court Judge Ann McKown.

The Associated Press player of the year also was charged with
unlawful use of highways for making an illegal U-turn when he was
arrested June 13, police said.

Redick was arrested soon after 1 a.m. when he turned around as
he approached a license check point near the Duke campus, police
said. He pulled into a parking lot of an apartment complex after
police pursued him.

The 22-year-old Redick was released on $1,000 bond shortly after
being taken before a Durham County magistrate. The arresting
officer wrote in his report that Redick had "very glassy eyes,
strong odor of alcohol coming from breath."

He had a blood-alcohol level of 0.11 percent. The legal limit
for drivers in North Carolina is 0.08.

Redick, who has a Virginia driver's license, lost his driving
privileges in North Carolina for 30 days, police said.

Redick ended his college career as the leading scorer in
Atlantic Coast Conference history.
