A court date has been delayed for UNLV senior forward Chace Stanback until December on a possible misdemeanor charge of DUI stemming from a May 13 traffic stop in the Las Vegas area.
Stanback, who was scheduled to appear this morning in Las Vegas Justice Court, did not show up.
However, his attorney, Steve Wolfson, was there to appear for him and was told that the Clark County District Attorney’s office has not yet filed formal charges, pending the results of a blood alcohol test, according to a court marshal.
Wolfson was told that Stanback’s new court date would be 7:30 a.m. Dec. 1, the court official said. Tess Driver, public information officer for the district attorney's office, said there is a backlog of DUI test results.
His scheduled appearance falls between Rebels road games at UC Santa Barbara on Nov. 30 and at Wichita State on Dec. 4
Stanback, who is the Rebels' leading returning scorer and rebounder, was arrested May 13 for suspicion of driving under the influence in Las Vegas.
According to Metro Police spokesman Jay Rivera, the stop came at 2:23 a.m. at the intersection of Colby Avenue and Swenson Street — in the shadows of the Thomas & Mack Center and just a few blocks from his off-campus residence near Swenson and Flamingo Road. Stanback was pulled over for speeding, and also failed to provide proof of insurance.
