Mookie Blaylock sentenced to 16 days in jail

Back on March 20, former NBA guard Mookie Blaylock was involved in a hit-and-run collision in a grocery store parking lot.

Just over two months later, on May 31, Blaylock was involved in a head on crash that killed a mother of five.

On Tuesday, Blaylock plead guilty to the DUI charges stemming from the March 20 incident and was sentenced, according Alexis Stevens of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Former NBA and Atlanta Hawks star Mookie Blaylock — still facing charges for a Clayton County wreck that killed a mother of five — is back in jail after pleading guilty to a drunk driving charge in Spalding County.

Blaylock, 46, pleaded guilty Monday to DUI and hit-and-run charges stemming from an incident last March, a spokeswoman for the State Court of Spalding County said Tuesday. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail, but was credited for the 14 days he served, attorney Don Samuel told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Within 48 hours of his release from jail, Blaylock must report to an in-patient rehabilitation program, Samuel said.

Blaylock will likely see more jail time after because of the death he caused in May.
