January 31, 2012|By Don Markus | The Baltimore Sun

Maryland assistant coach Dalonte Hill, who was arrested for drunk driving on Jan. 19, is scheduled to appear in Anne Arundel CountyDistrict Court on May 14, according to electronic records.

Hill faces charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and driving while impaired by alcohol for an incident which took place on his 33rd birthday. He was suspended for two games by first-year Maryland coach Mark Turgeon.

According to the police report, Hill told officers that he had "three beers at the club" prior to his arrest. Hill was stopped at 1:55 a.m. after police saw him driving erratically on southbound Route 295 near Route 32.

According to a spokeswoman for the Anne Arundel State's Attorney, Hill will lose his license for at least 90 days after refusing to take a breathalyzer test following his arrest. Hill could lose his license for up to six months.

Hill returned to the Maryland bench for last Saturday's victory over Virginia Tech after missing games against Temple and Duke. Hill had a prior drunk driving charge while an assistant at Kansas State in 2008, but that charge was expunged from his record after he completed an intervention course.
