The younger brother of Denver Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. was arrested early Sunday morning in Missouri on investigation of driving while intoxicated.

Jevon Porter, 20, was arrested at 1:31 a.m. in Boone County, Missouri, State Highway Patrol records show. Porter, who was released, also was accused of speeding.

The 6-foot-11 Columbia, Missouri, native is a sophomore on the Pepperdine University basketball team. He started all 31 games his freshman year and made the all-West Coast Conference freshman team, according to his player biography. Porter was the fifth-ranked player in the state coming out of Father Tolton Catholic High School.

The incident represents the latest in a string of arrests and other alleged misdeeds for the Porter family.

Coban Porter, another brother of the NBA star, was sentenced to six years in prison last month for killing a woman in a drunk-driving crash in Denver last year.
