Toronto Raptor Jonas Valanciunas has been charged with impaired driving, according to a report on Toronto’s Newstalk 1010.

The incident involving the 21-year-old, second-year centre took place in Wasaga Beach, Ont. about 2:30 a.m. on Monday after OPP officers responded to a report of a car going through a drive-through with open liquor inside. They deemed Valanciunas to be impaired, and he was charged, according to the report.
