CARLSBAD, Calif. - Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss was arrested early Tuesday for investigation of driving under the influence of alcohol.

The 74-year-old Buss was taken into custody shortly before 1 a.m. after he drove his gold Mercedes-Benz station wagon the wrong way on a street in an unincorporated section of Carlsbad that has double yellow lines, California Highway Patrol Officer Tom Kerns said.

``Although I was driving only a short distance, it was a bad decision and I was wrong to do it,'' Buss said in a statement issued by the Lakers. ``It was a mistake I will not make again.''

A 23-year-old woman in the vehicle with Buss wasn't arrested, Kerns said.

He said Buss was ``relatively cooperative'' when placed under arrest, and was booked into the Vista jail for investigation of drunken driving and driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or above.

Buss was released around 10:30 a.m., according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department Web site. Kerns said the final results of Buss' blood alcohol test won't be available for about three weeks.

Highway Patrol officers Sal Gutierrez and Julie Cahill administered field sobriety tests using an alcohol screening device, Kerns said.

Lakers spokesman John Black said Buss was in the Carlsbad vicinity because he has a home in north San Diego County. Buss' primary residence is in the Los Angeles suburb of Playa del Rey.

Wow.

It would be awesome to get into a fender-bender with him and blackmail him so that you wouldn't leak his drunkenness to the press. Mucho dinero.

If I had the money he has I wouldn't drive anywhere. I'd have a fulltime driver.

Gotta wonder what's up with the 23-year old woman, huh?

Probably just a granddaughter. Maybe he was taking her to the zoo.

Whatta pimp. Wouldn't that be somethin' if he didn't even have to pay her. I have to give him a hand, thats over a 50 year age difference. I'd just be happy to have my weiner look to the sky and be alive by that age, let alone be drunk in a 'cedes with a 23 year old chicky in my ride on the way to my casa.

:clap: :clap:
