“It will likely be high,” Jonesboro Police Chief Franklin Allen said. “It depends on his driving history.”
Last week, Blaylock’s attorney said the accident was caused by a medical emergency.
“He had a blackout and what caused it, whether it be from his NBA career or something else, we’re trying to get to the bottom of it,” Don Samuel, a high-profile attorney, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Allen said that because of the possibility of blackouts, Blaylock shouldn’t have been behind the wheel.
“The one thing that troubles me about this is, if he had a medical condition and knew he had the tendency to black out, he shouldn’t have been driving,” Allen said. “If he knew his license was suspended, he shouldn’t have been driving. This was avoidable.”
If and when Blaylock makes bail, he has a warrant for his arrest in Spalding County, where he lives and failed to appear in court on a March charge of driving under the influence.
