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. Mister DUI says:

    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

    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.
