Jonas Valanciunas, the center for the Toronto Raptors, has been arrested for a DUI in Wasaga Beach, Canada on Monday, April 7, 2014.

Wasaga Beach is located in Ontario and it is a very popular hotspot.

According to the Ontario Provincial Police statement, “At about 2:30 am, OPP officers responded to a report of a silver car giong through a drive-through with open beer bottles inside. Police say they located the vehicle near a residence on Oxbow Park Rd. . . . The charge carries a $1,000 fine and one-year license suspension for first-time offenders.”

The Lush Crush has seen a lot of DUI stories in her day and she can tell you that a large number of people get arrested in a drive-thru. It is all too common.

The Raptors were made aware of the situation and they issued the following statement:

We take this matter very seriously as we have the highest expectations for all members of our organization.
