Riley Sheahan, a top NHL prospect for the Detroit Red Wings, was arrested last month for driving down the wrong side of the road in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The incident is making headlines today because the details surrounding the arrest were just made public.
It turns out Sheahan, who was arrested two days before Halloween, was dressed in a Tinky Winky costume (yes, from Teletubbies) at the time of the incident. And he blew a .30. That’s almost four times the legal blood-alcohol limit of .08. Jesus Christ, that’s drunk.
Sheahan, 20, is now facing a steep fine and up to 180 days in jail.
