PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix Suns broadcaster Tom Chambers has apologized to the NBA team and its fans after being arrested on suspicion of DUI.

Scottsdale police say the 54-year-old Chambers was pulled over Saturday night after an officer saw a pickup truck weaving in a bicycle lane.

A police report says there were two opened bottles of beer inside the vehicle and Chambers refused to take a field sobriety test.

Police say Chambers consented to a blood draw, was booked and released pending the results.

Chambers was a four-time all-star forward in a 16-year career that ended in 1997. He played for the Suns from 1988-1993 and helped Phoenix reach the NBA Finals in 1993. He now works as a studio host for Suns' televised games.

Suns officials declined comment on the arrest.
