It took a drunk driving arrest to catch California Sen. Roy Ashburn at a gay bar, but any on-looker could've spotted John Amaechi at Splash Bar in New York back when he was playing for the Utah Jazz (vs. the New York Knicks), he tells Ben & Dave's Six Pack. "It wasn't just Splash in New York, it was Roxy while it existed. In LA I'm very good friends with the guys who owned the Abbey." And yes, he was spotted by fans. "I knew it was a risk being out to the entire universe before I was ready, but at the same time it felt like it was a sanity break to have that … two or three hours on the occasional road trip where I actually went out."
