SNELLVILLE, Ga. - Police in an Atlanta suburb say New Orleans Hornets' backup point guard Jarrett Jack has been arrested and charged with drunken driving.

Snellville Police Chief Roy Whitehead said in an e-mail Monday the 27-year-old former Georgia Tech star was pulled over early Sunday by an officer who clocked him at 66 mph in a 45-mph zone.

Police say Jack's Mercedes was also weaving.

Whitehead says Jack failed a field sobriety test, then was taken to the Gwinnett County jail and given a breath test, which measured just under the legal limit of .08 more than an hour after Jack was stopped.

Jack was also charged with failure to maintain a lane.

He was released Sunday night.

He did not immediately return a call for a telephone number listed for him in Atlanta.
