MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -A man convicted in the alcohol-related crash that killed Timberwolves guard Malik Sealy was arrested Sunday on suspicion of drunken driving.
Souksangouane Phengsene, 51, of Shakopee was booked into the Hennepin County Jail around 2 a.m., according to the county Web site. State Patrol spokesman Mark Peterson said Phengsene is likely to face a felony DWI charge.
In May 2000, Phengsene was driving the wrong way on Highway 100 when he hit a vehicle driven by Sealy, who died from injuries suffered in the crash. Phengsene was convicted of vehicular homicide and sentenced to four years in prison.
He also was convicted of drunken driving in Iowa in 1997 and Minnesota in 2006.
