  • JONESBORO, Ga. (AP) — Former NBA All-Star Daron “Mookie” Blaylock is out of the hospital and in jail, charged with vehicular homicide in a car crash south of Atlanta.

    Blaylock is also charged with driving on a suspended license, making an improper lane change and crossing the median in the head-on crash that killed a 43-year-old woman in Jonesboro on May 31. Blaylock surrendered Monday and is being held without bond.

    Blaylock’s attorney has said the former player blacked out just before the crash. Authorities have said Blaylock was also wanted elsewhere for failing to appear in court on a DUI charge.

    The 46-year-old Blaylock was a first-round draft pick by the New Jersey Nets out of Oklahoma in 1989. He played for the Atlanta Hawks, Golden State Warriors and in the 1994 NBA All-Star game.
