NBC in touch with Al Michaels after his DUI arrest
NBC said Sunday it is aware of sportscaster Al Michaels’ arrest for allegedly driving under the influence in Santa Monica but declined to say whether it would affect his work with the network.
Greg Hughes, a spokesman for NBC Sports, told Associated Press that the network had been “in contact with Michaels.” Hughes declined to elaborate.
A longtime announcer on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” Michaels was arrested at about 10 p.m. Friday, booked into jail and released on his own recognizance early Saturday.
“He 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, so he was released on a citation at about 3 or 4 in the morning,” Sgt. William Heric told City News Service. “He was cooperative and polite the whole time.”
Michaels is scheduled to appear at Los Angeles Municipal Court at 8:30 a.m. on June 26.
