George Maloof, owner of the Palms hotel-casino in Las Vegas, failed three sobriety tests before being arrested for drunken driving earlier this month, according to an arrest report released today.

Maloof, 46, repeatedly asked his female passenger where his driver's license and passport were during the traffic stop, the arrest report stated.

Maloof was stopped at 11:36 p.m. Oct. 9 near Spanish Trail Country Club in the southwest valley, where he lives, and was booked into the Clark County Detention Center. He was released from jail the next day.

In addition to the DUI charge, police said Maloof also was booked in connection with speeding 21 to 30 miles over the posted speed limit, making an illegal left turn, driving without a valid license and not having proof of insurance.

The district attorney's office is reviewing the case and Maloof hasn't been formally charged. If charges are filed, Maloof is expected to have an arraignment on Jan. 10, 2011.

Maloof has said he had four beers and was driving home with his assistant from a friend's wedding about six miles away.
