UPDATED: Tracy Mourning Responds To DUI Arrest

Tracy Mourning, the wife of retired Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning, was arrested early Friday morning near Miami for driving under the influence.

Police say Mourning was driving her 2010 Porsche Panamera on Douglas Road in Coconut Grove around 3:40 a.m. when an officer clocked her speeding 28 miles over the speed limit.

According to the police report, Mourning then ran through a stop sign and swerved until an officer stopped her at Old Cutler Road and San Servando Avenue.

The arresting officer wrote that Mourning politely asked, "What did I do, sir?" and then winked as she said, "Was going fast, wasn't I?" According to the police report, Mourning told the officer she had just had dinner with some "amazing friends."

Mourning smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes, and slurred her speech, the officer wrote. She failed a roadside sobriety test and refused an on-scene blood alcohol level test, prompting him to take her into custody.

Mourning, the namesake of North Miami's Alonzo and Tracy Mourning Senior High School, was charged with driving under the influence. She and her husband are often recognized for their charitable contributions to South Florida, including the Honey Shine Mentoring Program Tracy Mourning began in 2002. Alonzo Mourning currently serves as Vice President of Player Programs and Development for the Heat.

UPDATE, Sunday, 6:45 p.m.: Mourning issued a statement on Twitter, saying she looked forward to having "all the facts" come out in the legal process:

The pair recently moved into a $4.5 million mansion in nearby Pinecrest.
