Ty Lawson broke the terms of his probation by testing positive for alcohol THREE TIMES over the past 7 months … this according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports.
As we previously reported, the Sacramento Kings star is on probation stemming from his 2015 drunk driving case in Denver … and part of the terms required Lawson to stay completely sober and submit to alcohol testing.
But officials say Lawson tested positive for booze on 9/27, 9/29 and 2/7.
FYI, the Kings had the day off on 2/7 in between two home games.
Lawson spoke with reporters at Kings Media Day on Sept. 26 … giving interviews about his troubled past, including the drunk driving arrest … and vowing to move forward.
The next day, officials say he tested positive for booze.
Officials want the judge to revoke Lawson's probation and subject him to harsher punishment — which includes jail time.
A court date has been set for March 22 — the same day the Kings play the Bucks — and if he doesn't show, a warrant will be issued for his arrest.
