Lakers forward Deven Ebanks was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor DUI in Los Angeles early Friday morning, according to law enforcement sources and booking records. Ebanks, 23, was pulled over at 2:49 a.m. in the Hollywood area by California Highway Patrol officers and booked at 3:44 a.m. Ebanks was released later Friday morning after posting 5,000 bail. A post on his Twitter account Thursday afternoon encouraged his followers to celebrate a womans birthday Thursday night at Roxbury night club near Hollywood. Ebanks next scheduled court date is Dec. 7, according to booking records. The Lakers, who play Golden State tonight at Staples Center, are aware of the arrest. It was Ebanks second incident with law enforcement in a little more than a year. Prosecutors declined to file charges against him last December after a woman alleged Ebanks sexually assaulted her three months earlier. Ebanks re-signed with the Lakers last August for one year for 1.4 million after averaging four points in 24 games of his second NBA season. He is averaging 2.5 points this season as one of the Lakers first players off the bench. Ebanks originally joined the Lakers after being selected out of West Virginia in the second round of the 2010 draft.
