Lawson was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving after being pulled over for going 61 mph in a 35 mph zone. He pleaded guilty to one count of driving while ability impaired and failure to stay in a single lane, according to the Denver County Court Records cited in the report.
A sentence hearing has been set for Jan. 14, 2016, in Denver, according to the report, and Lawson could face up to 180 days in jail or a lengthy probation period.
Lawson's first year with the Rockets has not gotten off to a great start. Not only is the diminutive point guard shooting a woeful 31 percent from the floor, but Houston is below .500 through 12 games and just fired head coach Kevin McHale on Wednesday.
