DURHAM, N.C. -- J.J. Redick's court appearance to face drunken driving charges was delayed Tuesday until Oct. 24.

Redick, a former Duke star and first-round draft pick of the Orlando Magic, was also charged with unlawful use of highways for making an illegal U-turn, police said.

His court date was originally scheduled for Aug. 1 and was delayed until Tuesday before it was moved forward again.

Redick was arrested after 1 a.m. on June 13 when he turned around as he approached a license check point near the Duke campus. 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 after appearing 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 lost his driving privileges in North Carolina for 30 days.

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