BEAVER -- Former University of Pittsburgh basketball star Carl Krauser has waived his right to a preliminary hearing and now faces trial for drunken driving, drug and weapons charges stemming from a drunken-driving checkpoint in western Pennsylvania earlier this month.

Krauser's attorney didn't immediately return a call Tuesday on the report by the Beaver County Times.

Police in Beaver Falls say Krauser tried to run when his vehicle was stopped on May 12. Officers say they later found two bags of marijuana on Krauser and a loaded gun under his front seat, in addition to charging him with drunken driving and public drunkenness.

The 31-year-old Krauser, who lives in New York City, was a guard for Pitt from 2002 through 2006 and finished with more than 1,000 points and 400 assists.
