2 Duke basketball players face DWI-related charges


HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (AP) — The grandson of Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski and a star teammate face charges related to impaired driving. North Carolina State Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Chris Knox says Michael Savarino was pulled over for a stop sign violation early Sunday. Court records show Krzyzewski’s 20-year-old grandson was driving teammate Paolo Banchero’s white Jeep and admitted that he had consumed “several shots.” Savarino was charged with driving while impaired and driving after consuming under the age of 21. Banchero, who was riding in the back seat, was cited for aiding and abetting impaired driving at the scene.
