Last Tuesday pop singer Eric Carmen was charged with driving under the influence in Orange, Ohio, east of Cleveland.
According to the arrest report, Carmen ran his vehicle into a fire hydrant. He then offered the investigating officer his credit card rather than his driver’s license. Police found a half bottle of Gray Goose vodka in the vehicle. Carmen registered a blood alcohol content of .23%, nearly three times the legal limit for intoxication in Ohio. He was released on a personal bond and is sheduled to be arraigned September 16. It is Carmen’s second drunk driving offense.
Carmen, 59, started his career in the 70’s with the Raspberries, recording hits like ‘Go All The Way’ and ‘Overnight Sensations’. He went on to a solo career and was the musical talent behind such hits as ‘Hungry Eyes’ and ‘All By Myself’.
