Is Ty Lawson trying to force the Nuggets to get rid of him?

Last month, Lawson posted a bizarre video of him smoking hookah during the 2015 NBA Draft and talking about Denver getting rid of him now that they've got Emmanuel Mudiay on their roster. Now, Lawson has been arrested for DUI for the second time this year. He got busted for DUI in Denver back in January, and very early this morning, he reportedly got busted again in California after partying at a nightclub called Le Jardin in Hollywood.

Strangely enough, Lawson did an interview with TMZ Sports a short time before he allegedly jumped into his car and got arrested, and he didn't seem like he was in bad shape:

But looks can obviously be deceiving. Lawson is currently in jail, and his bail has been set at $5,000. Stay tuned for more details.
