PHOENIX -- A Phoenix Suns broadcaster was arrested Saturday and charged with DUI, a police report said.

Tom Chambers was driving in north Scottsdale about 9:45 p.m. Saturday when his vehicle was allegedly spotted swerving into both the bicycle and other lanes.

After being pulled over, Chambers told officers he had a few drinks at the Pac-12 Championship Game between Arizona State University and Stanford. Chambers had a passenger in the vehicle and two opened bottles of beer were found in the vehicle.

The report said that Chambers was belligerent and refused a field sobriety test. He was arrested, booked on several charges and released pending the outcome of a blood test.

In a statement released to 12 News, Suns President Jason Rowley said the organization is aware of Chamber's arrest.

"Driving under the influence is a serious matter," the statement read. "However, the legal process is ongoing and we will have no further comment at this time."

In an accompanying statement, Chambers apologized for his conduct.

"I take my role as a representative with the Suns very seriously and have always held myself to a high standard. I want to apologize to the Phoenix Suns and its fans for the negative attention this incident has brought upon the organization.",
