Over prosecutors' objections, the former Denver Nugget was sentenced to probation rather than jail last year and ordered to remain sober.
Probation officials issued a summons last week ordering Lawson to appear in court March 22 to respond to their allegations.


A judge will decide then whether Lawson's probation should be revoked and whether he should be sentenced to jail instead.
Before he was sentenced, Lawson completed a court-ordered 30-day residential treatment program at Cliffside Malibu, a celebrity rehabilitation center in California.
His lawyer didn't return a call seeking comment.





DENVER - Sacramento Kings point guard Ty Lawson has denied that he violated his probation in a Colorado drunken driving case by drinking and failing to complete community service.
Lawson and his attorney Harvey Steinberg made the assertion Thursday during a brief appearance in a Denver courtroom. In addition, Steinberg said Lawson wanted his vehicle equipped with an interlock device that would test him for alcohol consumption so he could prove he's not drinking.
The judge agreed and plans to hold a hearing in May before deciding whether the former Denver Nugget should get a more severe punishment.
Probation officials allege Lawson tested positive for alcohol three times in the past six months.
He was arrested twice on drunken driving charges in 2015, first in Denver and then in Los Angeles.
