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.
