HOUSTON - Former Houston Rocket Steve Francis on Tuesday pleaded guilty to a DWI charge from November.

It appears Francis, 40, will spend three days in jail and pay a $1,000 fine. His driver’s license was also suspended.

Francis was stopped by a Precinct 5 deputy last November for speeding. He was reportedly traveling 88 mph in a 65 mph zone.

The deputy smelled alcohol and reported that Francis was belligerent. Three additional deputies were called to the scene and tried to get Francis to park his vehicle in a parking lot, but he was uncooperative.

There was no physical confrontation, but deputies said Francis did refuse a field sobriety test.

Francis was originally charged with DWI, possession of marijuana and retaliation. The retaliation charge was dropped in February.
