Paolo Banchero Charged With Aiding And Abetting DWI 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Nov 16, 2021 7:53 pm

Paolo Banchero faces a DWI-related charges after Duke teammate Michael Savarino's arrest early Sunday morning.


Savarino is the grandson of Mike Krzyzewski. 


According to court records obtained by The (Raleigh) News & Observer, Savarino, 20, was arrested on DWI charges and Banchero, 19, was charged with aiding and abetting DWI.


Savarino had a blood alcohol content of 0.08.


"We are reviewing a legal matter involving two members of the men's basketball team," Krzyzewski said in a statement to the newspaper. "Any further actions as a result of this situation will ultimately be determined by the Vice President/Director of Athletics and University officials."

bump in draft stock: hes a good teammate. in all seriousness. the guy blew .08, the limit in NC is 0.08. the kid was just a year too young. all they have to do is wave the rich, famous white grandfather wand and this will go away for coach k's grandson, eliminating the dwi for him, thus not making aiding a DWI possible.

They have to prove
(1) that the crime was committed by another; (2) that the defendant knowingly advised, instigated, encouraged, procured, or aided the other person; and (3) that the defendant's actions or statements caused or contributed to the commission of the crime by the other person.

They would have to convict coach K's grandon in North carolina in order to get Banchero, not happening.

He was arrested in Orange county - home to UNC. Should have stayed up in Durham if he wanted special treatment.

Banchero is in trouble because it was his car and he gave the keys to minor he knew had been drinking and then hopped in the back seat. Kinda dumb. Just get an uber or drink on your own campus. Even if he's convicted it's a misdemeanor and the punishment is typically a $200 fine, so I doubt he has any long term worries. It's a step up from a speeding ticket, but the only way he misses any time over this is if Duke suspends him.
