Al Michaels, Sports Broadcaster, Gets DWI

The New York Post claimed that Al Michaels, legendary sports broadcaster, was busted for drunken driving in Los Angeles Saturday night after being pulled over for an illegal U-turn. Richard Lewis, Santa Monica police sergeant, stated that Michaels, who is 68 years old, was driving east near Pico Boulevard approximately at 9:30 p.m. when officials spotted him making an illegal U-turn. Police officials immediately stopped Michaels, who was driving a Mercedes vehicle. Lewis also added that Michaels smelled of alcohol and had slurred speech before failing field-sobriety tests, however, he was described as cooperative. It was noted that Michaels became globally recognized when he participated as the broadcaster for the U.S. Hockey Team, which really angered the Soviets, in the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid. Michaels’ “Do you believe in miracles? Yes!” quote is still memorable today. It was reported that he is currently broadcasting “Sunday Night Football” on national television for NBC.
