Hockey Player Riley Sheahan Busted For DUI

riley sheahanRiley Sheahan, a player on the Grand Rapids Griffins hockey team, was arrested for DUI on October 29, 2012 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. According to Sgt. Allen Noles, Sheahan was traveling the wrong way on Ottawa Avenue just before midnight when police pulled him over. Police found Sheahan’s blood alcohol content (BAC) level to be .17%, which is more than double the state’s legal limit and considered a “superdrunk” DUI. Sheahan was also charged with giving false information to police and plead not guilty to the charges at his arraignment on November 6.

Riley Sheahan has been considered one of the NHL’s best players and was the Detroit Red Wings No. 1 pick in the 2010 draft. Sheahan did not play in the San Antonio game following his arrest, which his team lost 3-2. The Griffins senior director of public relations, Randy Cleves, said, “We are aware of the incident and have been aware of the incident from the beginning.” Cleves also noted that Sheahan has been subject to internal disciplinary action but did not give any details. This is not the first time Riley Sheahan has been in trouble with the law. He was arrested in 2010 for public intoxication in South Bend, Indiana while attending his freshman year at Notre Dame.
