What do you get when you combine Tinky Winky with a little drinky-drinky?  Nothing good. Detroit Red Wings prospect Riley Sheahan reportedly had a blood alcohol level of .30 and was wearing a purple Teletubby costume when he was arrested for DUI by Cedar Rapids Police on Oct. 29. The 2010 first-round draft pick — who was nearly four times the legal limit —  was pulled over for driving his 2012 Jeep the wrong way and was arrested on charges of being "super drunk" driving and giving false information. One has to wonder if the police recovered any evidence from the TV screen embedded on the cuddly children's character's stomach. The 20-year-old Sheahan, playing for the Grand Rapids Griffins, was also carrying 23-year-old teammate  Brendan Smith's Michigan driver's license when he was pulled over shortly before midnight  in down town Cedar Rapids. Sheahan admitted he was carrying Smith's ID to get into bars, according to the police report.  There was no word on how Sheahan obtained Smith's license. The arrest report, via MLive said: "Riley had a Michigan driver's license in the license window in his wallet, which is what Officer Dyer used as his ID.  Deputies found Riley's Canadian license in the wallet after it was turned in with his property and he kept telling them his name was Riley. "Riley is only 20 and I asked him if he had Branden's (sic) ID so he could get into bars. He shook his head yes and stated "yea." The drinking age is 21. Sheahan was the Red Wings top pick (21st overall) and joined their minor league affiliate earlier this year.  He has three goals and and two assists in 15 games this season. Sheahan is looking at charges that could turn Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po's giggles to gasps.  The super drunk charge can "carry up to 180 days in jail with a conviction and possible deportation because he is not a U.S. citizen," according to MLive. The Red Wings were made aware of the arrest and are monitoring the situation.
