In April 1999 Houston authorities charged basketball star Scottie Pippen with drunk driving. Reports state that police witnessed the six-time NBA champion pass cars stopped at a red light using an oncoming lane. Then-Rockets player Pippen failed a field sobriety test and refused to take a Breathalyzer, but prosecutors subsequently dismissed the misdemeanor charge.
