April 24, 1999

WASHINGTON (AP) _ Rod Strickland of the Washington Wizards was arrested early today in the District of Columbia when police said he was driving while intoxicated.

Police Commander Charles Fonville said a gold Mercedes Benz was observed by officers traveling at a high rate of speed at about 3:45 a.m.

The car was pulled over and Strickland was administered a field sobriety test, Fonville said, ``which he apparently did not pass.″

Strickland was processed and released on his own recognizance for a later court date.

The Wizards lost Friday night to the Atlanta Hawks.
