PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — Detroit Pistons center Ben Wallace has been sentenced to a year of probation on misdemeanor charges of drunken driving and possessing a firearm while under the influence of alcohol.

The 37-year-old appeared Tuesday morning in Oakland County Circuit Court in Pontiac. He also must perform community service as part of his sentence.

Wallace pleaded guilty last month. He was arrested about 3 a.m. on Sept. 24 in the Detroit suburb of Bloomfield Township after officers observed a Cadillac Escalade being driven erratically. An unloaded pistol was in a backpack.

Officers saidWallace was given a blood-alcohol test and was above Michigan’s legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Wallace helped the Pistons win the 2004 NBA title.
