Colorado Rockies co-owner Charlie Monfort was arrested on Monday in Windsor, CO for suspicion of DUI. According to the Denver Post he was also cited for driving 10-19 miles per hour over the speed limit. He was released Tuesday on $2,500 bond. The real question here though, why does he look so happy in his mugshot? He looks like he just hit the lotto.
He actually was also arrested in 1999 for DUI where his BAC was twice the legal limit. He was very apologetic in his statement this time:
“I’m extremely disappointed in myself for the decision I made to drink and drive and the potential risk I caused to other innocent people. I want to apologize to my family, the Colorado Rockies staff, players, Major League Baseball and, of course, our fans for the embarrassment I have caused by my actions. I do understand the seriousness of my behavior and the issues that I am facing and I’m committed to do what’s necessary to deal with my problem.”
