Ty Lawson won't face DUI charges in California and Colorado until completing a 30-day residential treatment program, a Denver judge ruled Friday.
Lawson attended a pretrial hearing Friday in Denver, in which his lawyer said he enters treatment Saturday at Cliffside Malibu.
"We will be handling the personal needs of the defendant," said Lawson's lawyer, Harvey Steinberg, who added the program will "ensure his sobriety."
Lawson was arrested Tuesday in Los Angeles on suspicion of driving under the influence. He was arrested in Denver for the same thing in January.
