Alston's arraignment postponed in DWI case

Houston Rockets point guard Rafer Alston's arraignment on a misdemeanor drunken driving charge has been rescheduled for September 10th. The 32-year-old player was arrested before dawn on August 7th and freed on $500 bond. He had been due for arraignment today. There's no word on the reason for the postponement.

Alston has had other brushes with the law. Last August, Alston was charged with misdemeanor assault and public intoxication in Houston after a confrontation with a parking-lot attendant. About three weeks later, he was arrested in New York City after an alleged altercation in a nightclub, although charges in that case were later dropped.

Alston averaged 13.1 points and 5.3 assists last season.
