DUI’s are not funny and should be handled harshly, but I am supremely puzzled by what Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton was thinking when this photo was snapped.

The 39-year-old Helton was arrested for DUI early Wednesday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and careless driving in Denver.

Helton released a statement through his lawyer per the Denver Post.

“Last evening I exercised poor judgment and was charged with drinking and driving after driving to a gas station near my house. I am very sorry and embarrassed by my actions. I hold myself to a high standard and take my responsibility as a public figure very seriously. My entire career I have worked to set a positive example for my family and in our community and I fell far short of this standard.

“I sincerely ask my family, the Colorado Rockies Organization, Major League Baseball and the community to accept my apology. I make no excuses and accept full responsibility for my actions. I humbly ask your forgiveness.”

The mug shot though Todd, the mug shot.
