Substance Abuse Still Seems To Be A Issue For De La Hoya!

CEO of Golden Boy Promotions was arrested by the California Highway Patrol and charged with two misdemeanors: driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a blood alcohol content of .08% or greater.

The 43 year old, De La Hoya,  was speeding in a Land Rover west of Arroyo Blvd., on Del Mar Blvd., in Pasadena, according to police. When he was stopped, the officer detected the odor of alcohol on De La Hoya's breath. The former four-division champion failed several field sobriety tests and was arrested without incident at 1:57 a.m. PT. De La Hoya was later released from jail to his manager.
