There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of Riley Sheahan before, which is understandable considering he’s a 20-year old Detroit Red Wings prospect who has only played in one career NHL game. The kid has a promising future in hockey, he was drafted 21st overall in the 2010 NHL entry draft after spending three years at Notre Dame, but the only reason we’re talking about him is because of some recent moronic decisions he made off the ice. According to a report detailing Sheahan’s DUI arrest in Grand Rapids, Michigan on October 29th, the forward was arrested with a blood-alcohol content of .30. Yes, .30. If you know BAC pretty well, you know that’s nearly four times the legal limit. In fact, that’s almost double what would be considered “super-drunk” by police. Being “super-drunk” is classified having a BAC of 0.17 or higher, and can land a drunk driver up to 180 days in jail. But that’s not all Sheahan has to worry about. Because the kid is underage and admitted that he had been using teammate Brendan Smith‘s ID that night, he could face deportation back to his home country of Canada. But wait, we’re not done with the whole “bad decisions” thing just yet! Not only was Sheahan arrested for driving the wrong way on a Grand Rapids road, he was doing so while wearing a Teletubby costume. A PURPLE teletubby costume. Everybody knows the purple Teletubby is the black sheep of the group. Pretty safe to say he was either coming from or going to a Halloween bash, but if you start out your night with the terrible decision to dress up as the purple Teletubby you’re only asking for your night to end with awful choices later. Clearly, Riley Sheahan has a lot of growing up to do. [Post via The Nosebleeds, one of our sports & entertainment network sites] Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
