Brother of Michael Porter Jr., Jevon Porter, arrested for suspected DWI

Former Pepperdine standout Jevon Porter, who is also the younger brother of Denver Nuggets star Michael Porter Jr., was arrested on Friday night in Missouri on suspicion of DWI, according to Missouri State Sgt. Kyle Green.

According to Green, Porter, who is 20 years old, was released on summons instead of being booked into jail in Boone County, where the incident took place. Power Mizzou was the first to report Porter’s arrest.

Green stated that Porter was pulled over for speeding prior to his arrest for DWI. Porter, a 6-foot-11 forward, recently made the move from Pepperdine to Loyola Marymount. Last season, he had an impressive average of 16.2 points and 5.9 rebounds per game.

Loyola Marymount is currently investigating Porter’s situation.

The school responded to the recent reports in the media by stating, “We are aware of the matter and are currently collecting information.”

The arrest follows closely on the heels of the NBA’s recent ban of Jontay Porter, who is the older brother of Porter. Jontay, a player for the Toronto Raptors, was found to have bet on games, manipulated the outcome of bets, and shared confidential information with bettors. NBA commissioner Adam Silver condemned Jontay’s actions, stating that his blatant disregard for the league’s gaming regulations warranted the harshest possible consequences.

Days later, Jevon Porter’s older brother, Coban Porter, faced his own legal troubles. Coban, who used to play for Denver, was recently sentenced to six years in prison. This harsh punishment was a result of a tragic drunk-driving accident that occurred in Colorado last year. According to police records, Coban had a blood alcohol level of 0.19, which is more than twice the legal limit. He ran a red light and collided with another vehicle, causing the death of Kathy Limon Rothman and severely injuring her passenger. As a consequence, Coban received a two-year sentence for injuring Rothman’s passenger, and both sentences will be served concurrently.
