Diana Taurasi could outdrink me

Whoah, if I had the same blood-alcohol level as Diana Taurasi when she was pulled over in Phoenix for a DUI - I'd probably be begging for a bucket at a Zips somewhere while trying to eat a Big Zipper to soak up all the booze.

PHOENIX -- Mercury star Diana Taurasi faces three drunken driving related charges, including extreme DUI, for a July 2 incident in which she also was cited for speeding.

A Phoenix police report released Tuesday shows Taurasi's blood-alcohol level was 0.17 percent, or more than twice the Arizona legal limit of 0.08 percent.

The 27-year-old guard was cited hours after she scored 22 points in the Mercury's 93-81 victory over the Seattle Storm.

Taurasi pleaded not guilty to the DUI charges and not responsible to the speeding citation.

A police officer who stopped Tauarsi's vehicle after seeing it drift outside a traffic lane near downtown Phoenix claims she was driving nearly 20 mph over the 35 mph limit.

Well at least she wasn't driving with Steve Urkel...
