More terrible news for the Porter family.

One of the brothers of Denver Nuggets player Michael Porter Jr. was arrested in Missouri on suspicion of driving while intoxicated less than three weeks after the other brother received a six-year jail term related to a tragic incident in Denver. According to reports, Jevon Porter, 20, was taken into custody on April 27 at about 1:30 a.m. According to the record, he was detained for DWI, which includes drinking and driving. A summons resulted in his release. Jevon Porter previously played college basketball at Pepperdine University before transferring to Loyola Marymount.

This recent news comes on the heels of Michael Porter Jr.'s other brother, Coban Porter, who was sentenced to six years in prison after his deadly DUI. He was charged with DUI homicide after running a red light after a night of drinking and killing a young mother who was working. Coban Porter admitted to driving drunk in the early hours of the morning on January 22, when the incident took place. Jontay Porter, another of Michael's brothers, was banned from the NBA for life after being found to have violated the league's gambling policy. Jontay manipulated his stats and gave a group of better information regarding his status for games.
