Legendary Sportscaster Al Michaels Arrested and Charged with Suspicion of DUI in Southern California

 

Do you believe in Miracles DUI, YES!

Emmy award winning legendary sports broadcaster, NBC Sunday Night Football play-by-play announcer Al Michaels and the individual most known for his 1980 Winter Olympics USA hockey team Miracle on Ice call … “Do you believe in miracles” was  arrested and charged with misdemeanor DUI in Southern California on Friday night. The 68 year old Michaels was charged with misdemeanor DUI and spent approximately five hours in the Santa Monica City Jail. He was released early Saturday morning on his own recognizance. Michael’s is scheduled to appear at Los Angeles Municipal Court at 8:30 a.m. on June 26.

Sgt. Ryan Gradle said Michaels, the current play-by-play announcer for NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” was extremely cooperative and was released on his own recognizance Saturday morning.

Michaels was arrested shortly before 10 p.m., then spent a little more than five hours in the Santa Monica City Jail, the Los Angeles Inmate Information Center said.

According to CBS Sports, Michaels was evaluated for suspicion of DUI, brought to the station for a Breathalyzer test, and it came out .08, which was at the legal limit. Hmm, so how are they going to get this to stick? It would appear that 4 to 5 hours transpired between the time of the arrest and the time in which the Breathalyzer test took place.

Sorry, the VIDEO below has nothing to do with Al Michaels’ DUI, but any time I can show or reference ‘Miracle on Ice,’ the greatest US sporting moment in history and the greatest upset of all time, I take the opportunity to do so.

      A misdemeanor!! Five hours in jail!! Think about the potential of a carnage that could result from a drunk behind the wheel of a vehicle.

      A misdemeanor!! Five hours in jail!! Where is the deterrence?

      How many people has this man killed over the years…if you think this is the first time he EVER drove drunk your beyond drunk…this slime has probably killed more people than the boston bombers which everyone was so scared of, they should check every unsolved HIT and RUN with where this thing was at the time!
