Sportscaster Al Michaels arrested on suspicion of DUI

Sportscaster Al Michaels was arrested for driving under the influence after he was stopped at a DUI checkpoint in Santa Monica.

Michaels, a longtime announcer on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” was arrested about 10 p.m. Friday, booked into jail and released on his own recognizance early Saturday, according to CNN.

“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.
