A former University of Kentucky basketball player was charged with driving under the influence after officers found his car stopped in a median Monday morning.
Souleymane "Jules" Camara, 31, was arrested after officers found him on New Circle Road between Richmond Road and Alumni Drive, Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said.
He also was charged with driving on a suspended license.
Camara was previously convicted of DUI in 2000. An officer pulled him over on Sherard Circle off Tates Creek Road. Officers found Camara in the back seat of his car. He apparently had jumped out of the driver's seat after pulling into a driveway.

A judge sentenced him to fines and told him to complete an alcohol-education program.
Camara, a native of Senegal, played at UK from the 1998-99 through 2002-03 seasons, scoring 809 points and grabbing 514 rebounds. He had a career average of 5.9 points and 3.8 rebounds, and at one time he ranked fifth on UK's career list for scoring 155 blocks.
Camara was the second former Wildcat to be arrested for DUI in two days. On Saturday, Anthony Epps, who now coaches basketball at Marion County High School, was arrested early Saturday.
Epps, 35, of Lebanon, was stopped by Lebanon police near the Hamilton Heights neighborhood about 2:05 a.m. and failed "normal field sobriety tests," Lebanon Police Sgt. Greg Young said.
