Al Michaels Arrested for DUI


Al Michaels


According to a story courtesy of TMZ, legendary sportscaster and Sunday Night Football play-by-play man Al Michaels, was arrested on Friday night for suspicion of DUI.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Michaels went through a DUI checkpoint in Santa Monica at approximately 10:00 PM on Friday and when he spoke to officers, they detected an odor of alcohol.

We’re told he was pulled over and given a field sobriety and after performing poorly, he was placed under arrest. Michaels was released from jail at 4:15 AM on Saturday on his own recognizance. 

According to our sources, Michaels blood alcohol level was right at the legal limit — he blew a .08 and a .09 in two breathalyzer tests.

Our sources say Michaels could not have been nicer throughout the ordeal.




  1. Obviously not guilty. His blood level was rising, .08, then .09. He was teted 30 minutes after he was stopped. So, he was .04 when driving; no one saw him drive badly. Not Guilty, easy peezy. misterduicom

  2. It’s simple, if you drink don’t drive, if you drive don’t drink. I can’t believe so many people think they can still drive a car after they had a drink. One sip of alcohol and you are impaired, which means you should not drive. Al Michaels could have killed somebody, thank goddness he didn’t.
