Dayton forward Plummer convicted of drunken driving

DAYTON, Ohio -- Dayton junior forward Norman Plummer has
been convicted of operating a vehicle under the influence after
pleading no contest.

The 22-year-old Plummer was cited Sept. 30 after he struck a
utility pole with his car and failed a field sobriety test, police
said. His blood-alcohol content was 0.149, above the state's legal
limit of 0.08, according to a university police report.

Plummer entered the plea in Dayton Municipal Court on Friday. He
was found guilty, his drivers' license was suspended for six months
and he was ordered to perform 75 hours of community service.

Plummer averaged 10 points and led the team with 6.5 rebounds
per game last season.

He was suspended from the team pending resolution of the case.
The coaching staff has not determined what additional discipline
Plummer might face, school spokesman Doug Hauschild said Tuesday.
