A judge in Georgia has hit ex-NBA player Daron “Mookie” Blaylock with a $250,000 bond for his role in the fatal suburban Atlanta car crash that almost took his life as well.
Blaylock appeared in court on Tuesday dressed in an orange jumpsuit to face charges of vehicular homicide, driving on a suspended license, making an improper lane change and crossing the median in the head-on crash from May 31. The crash killed a 43-year-old woman and almost killed her husband as well.
The judge told Blaylock and his attorney that she set his bond so high because of his past arrests on DUI that went all the way back to 1996. At the time of the deadly crash, the 46-year-old Blaylock had a warrant out for his arrest in Spalding County for not appearing in court to answer a DUI charge.
