Mike Krzyzewski’s grandson — a member of the Duke U basketball team — was busted for DWI early Sunday morning … along with his future NBA star teammate, Paolo Banchero, who was also cited for aiding and abetting.
It was has confirmed that 20-year-old Michael Savarino was pulled over by the North Carolina State Highway Patrol around 1:10 AM in Orange County, NC … after cops say he blew a stop sign.
During the traffic stop, police say Savarino — whose mom is Coach K’s oldest daughter — showed signs of impairment … so he was arrested.
While in custody, Savarino blew a .08 BAC, cops say.
Savarino was ultimately charged with Driving While Intoxicated and released. He also received a ticket for failing to stop at the stop sign.
Meanwhile, 19-year-old Banchero — a projected top 5 pick in next year’s NBA Draft — was a passenger in the car.
He was cited for Aiding and Abetting DWI.
It’s unclear what exactly cops allege Paolo did to aid and abet. Coach K — coaching his last season at Duke before retiring — addressed the incident involving his grandson and star player.
“We are reviewing a legal matter involving two members of the men’s basketball team, Any further actions as a result of this situation will ultimately be determined by the Vice President/Director of Athletics and University officials.”
Both men were scheduled to play in #7 ranked Duke’s game Tuesday night against Gardner-Webb at Cameron Indoor … but their status is now unclear.
