Former NBA star Steve Francis was arrested for drunk driving in Houston this past weekend and police say he was quite a handful.

According to TMZ Sports, the former Houston Rockets star was initially pulled over in a black 2017 Chevy Tahoe on Saturday for doing 88 mph in a 65 mph zone around 11:20 p.m, but during the stop police noticed he reeked of alcohol.

Cops say the 39-year-old refused a field sobriety test, and more cops were called to the scene because Francis was uncooperative.  He was reportedly “verbally abusive” to the officer.  Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Francis made comments essentially warning the officers that he would get revenge for the arrest.  During the incident, cops also found weed.  He was eventually taken into custody and charged with DWI, possession of weed and retaliation.
