STORRS, Conn. (AP) Police say a UConn basketball player who faces several charges after fleeing from a one-vehicle crash smelled of alcohol at the time of the accident.
Freshman guard James Bouknight faces several charges including evading responsibility and driving without a license after police say he ran from the crash scene Sept. 27.
According to a redacted arrest warrant affidavit released Wednesday, the officer responding to the accident noted ''an odor of alcohol emitting from Bouknight.''
The 19-year-old Bouknight turned himself into police Oct. 3 and gave a statement saying he had been given permission to drive the car.
He was charged Monday and gave a statement Tuesday, apologizing for his actions.
The owner initially told police her keys had been taken from a counter without permission, but amended her statement on Oct. 13 to say she had been drunk and does not remember giving Bouknight permission to drive the car.
